Tough outing for Kenya

NAIROBI, Kenya, May 21- Kenya sevens rugby team will have to overcome a tricky pool B if its to maintain its stellar run in the 2009-10 International Rugby Board sevens circuit at Twickenham.The East Africans were drawn against New Zealand, World champions Wales and Portugal in the seventh leg which starts on Saturday with Kenya facing Portugal in the opening match at 2:20pm Kenyan time.

It will be followed by a clash against Wales from 5:26pm before wrapping things up against the All Blacks from 9.06pm.

Kenya will be wary of a Portuguese side that has beaten them six times in the last ten meetings and which beat them 14-12 the last time they met in 2008.

Incredibly, Kenya has a superior record against Wales having beaten the world champions seven times in 11 meetings and will hope to continue this rich vein of form before meeting New Zealand, against whom they have won just twice.

Benjamin Ayimba’s boys are currently seventh on the standings with 52 points-their highest ever total in a season that has seen them reached main cup quarterfinals of all but one of the previous six tournaments.

But they will have to produce A list performances if they are to keep the amazing run going.
“New Zealand are hoping to finish the season on a high and will come at us hard. Portugal have always been a problematic side for us so we have to be on our guard when we play them, and Wales of course they are world champions so we know what to expect,” said Ayimba.

The coach has made several changes with the return of Leon Adongo key to his target, “Leon has been in great form throughout the Super series. We would have liked to carry Wilson K’Opondo as well but he has exams.”

The team will however be missing the services of speedy Sidney Ashioya, Allan Onyango and Ben Nyambu who have been left behind due to work commitments.

But despite the absence of the three players, skipper Humphrey Kayange remains confident that they can go all the way at Twickenham.

“We have to be very incisive and very tight in defence. When we get the opportunity to score we have to take them and keep pumping the pressure so that we can make the main cup quarters,” he added.

The boys will no doubt want to put up a great performance in memory of former player Joshua Gathumbi who passed on early this week in Nairobi at age 25.

    Interesting observation – “This may sadly be so in a world synonymous with economic meltdowns, bankruptcies, redundancies, retrenchments and many other forces of instability.”
    A lot of the same was said during the great depression between 1929 and 1934 and yet the global economy was able to recover and flourish albeit with the aid of the military industrial complex during the second world war. Not everyone possesses the ability to be an entrepreneur, not everyone is going to be a Steve Jobs, a Mark Zuckerberg or an Aliko Dangote. Those businesses that you advocate for will depend on human resources in order to thrive and therein lies the quagmire. If we are all entrepreneurs, who works for us.

    Paul Minks!
    You do not need to be worried about your human resource. Just ensure that you hire  ‘Intrapreneurs’ as advocated in the main article.They will implement your policies and strategies just like they are co-owners of the business.

    loved it….shows that education is a right, as well as a personal obligation….rather than a means of making virtual ends meet.

    But you must agree that an educated mind is a necessity in any setting and in this fast evolving society we live in.I’ve seen and established that there is a huge difference between those who are educated and those who arent; it is all in the RATIONALE- a key ingredient in mere livelihood!! Self- employed or employed need an education however simple to be able to run their respective institutions.. I stand corrected though.

    I cant agree more. Self Employment or entrepreneurship is for everybody. The level of Education does not matter. But, the higher the level of Education, the higher is the level of reasoning.The article at hand guides us on getting knowledge that can be applied to real life rather than just acquiring certificates ( I dare say minus knowledge), whose purpose is mainly to enable us secure formal employment.

    Yurt Halısı Halıların yurtlarda seçiminde dayanıklı olması ve uzun süreler kullanıma uygun olması istenmektedir. Bu isteğin yanında renklerinin canlı olması ve uzun süre solma yapmaması da istenmektedir. Başarılı bir şekilde halıların uzun süreler kullanılması oldukça önemlidir. Yurtlarda kullanılacak halıların genel olarak evlerdeki ve iş yerlerinde farklı özelliklerdeki halıların bir karışımı olması istenmektedir. Bunların yanında maliyetlerinin de düşük olması da oldukça önemlidir. Bu sebepler ile Yurt Halısı fiyatları konusunda tercihlerin biraz karmaşık olabileceği ve farklı türlerin bu konuda tercih edilebileceği söylenebilmektedir. Yurtların odalar ile koridorları ve toplu kullanım alanlarının halılar ile kaplanması konusunda aynı halıların tercihi yanında farklı halılar ile de kaplanması mümkün olabilmektedir. child porn 現場兒童色情片 活婴儿色情片 儿童色情 児童ポルノ 兒童色情 看兒童色情片 看兒童色情片
