Kenya 7s coach to ring changes in Cape Town


Kenya Sevens head coach Paul Feeney will adapt some new defensive and attack strategies ahead of their clashes against Samoa, Australia and Ireland in Pool “D” clash at South Africa Sevens starting Friday in Cape Town.

However, Feeney was in praise of his charges despite not having won any match at the pool stage in Dubai Sevens saying that they have shown that they can compete effectively.

Feeney said by South Africa going on to win Dubai Sevens with England finishing third, it showed the kind of opposition Kenya met in Dubai.

Feeney said that there is no reprieve for Kenya Sevens in Cape Town where they meet Samoa and Australia who finished fourth and fifth respectively in Dubai.

Kenya finished 13th in Dubai after edging out Scotland 24-14 in the play-off. They had previously lost to South Africa (17-12), England (12-5) and Spain (22-19) in the Pool stage.

“Dubai shows how competitive teams are hence we just need to polish and tidy up some areas,” said Feeney. “I am changing the team’s defensive pattern slowly and it depends on how quickly they will understand it…it’s a new learning curve.”
