Nairobi - Kenya seven a side rugby head coach Paul Treu is confident his side will do well in the upcoming Dubai leg of the IRB World Sevens circuit.
Treu named the side that will represent the country over the weekend in Dubai, naming two uncapped players in a side that boasts a mixture of experience and youth in equal measure.
A lot will be expected of the side in the tourney especially with the former South Africa coach's arrival and he says that he is counting on his players to deliver.
Leonard Mugaisi and Humphrey Mulama have been handed debuts by Treu who hopes they will have a good outing.
" We have a balanced squad even though we are unlucky that some regular players can not make it due to other commitments.
" The two new players will need time to adapt but this is a good opportunity for them to hit the ground running and I do hope that they will take it.
" It will not be easy down in Dubai as we have some of the established nations in the mix but as Kenya we always have the chance to do well, he added.
Treu will be taking charge of the Kenyan side for the first time since signing up as the new coach.
