Kenya disappoint in Twickenham

NAIROBI, Kenya, May 24- Lavin Asego carried Dennis Mwanja shoulder high after the forward’s last ditch try against France clinched the shield title of the London IRB Sevens on Sunday.However, enduring images from Twickenham last weekend were the looks of disappointment etched on the faces of Kenya fans that thronged the cathedral of rugby hoping that their heroes would put the disappointment of the last tour behind them.

From the moment they stepped onto the turf against Portugal, it was one calamity after another with missed tackles, knock-ons and poor decision making the order of the day.

As a result, Kenya has dropped one place to eighth in the IRB Sevens standings while South Africa who reached the main cup final are up to sixth.

Benjamin Ayimba and the rest of his technical team should be worried that his team cannot execute simple first time tackling, a sin in sevens rugby where nine times out of time a line break will result in a try.

Humphrey Kayange said before the team’s departure to London that they had tightened up their defense in training however the likes of Wales and the United States picked them like a lock with superb running lines.

Against New Zealand and France, they were the Kenya everyone knows but elementary errors let them down.

The absence of Victor Oduor and Allan Onyango continued to tell as most of the time we came off second best at the set pieces where Brian Nyikuli seemed to be fighting a lone battle on this front.

Victor Sudi is delivering the goods with ball in hand but in defence and at the breakdown, his physicality counts for nothing.

As usual Kayange was an ever present force capped off with six tries while Collins Injera was a marked man was restricted to just three.

Horace Otieno who made his first start in a while against France proved again that he can be handful when given space by scoring a try and creating another.

Perhaps its time for Ayimba to give some of his fringe players like Otieno, Dennis Muhanji and Leon Adongo a chance to get more involved.

With Samoa, France and Argentina lying in wait at Murrayfield, one would be forgiven for wondering whether Kenya should even turn up but if the team goes to Edinburgh with the right mindset-and a proper defensive set up, they can redeem themselves from a weekend to forget.
