Treu arrives, set for unveiling

TREU-TWONAIROBI, Kenya, November 4 – Kenya Rugby Union (KRU) are set to unveil Paul Treu after the former South African rugby sevens head coach arrived in the country Monday to take up a similar role with the national team.

KRU chairman, Mwangi Muthee urged the rugby fraternity to give Treu and his management time to settle down to business ahead of his formal presentation and preparing the team for the forthcoming Dubai 7s..

“We sincerely appreciate his agreeing to take up the mantle of heading our national team from where Mike Friday and Chris Brown left us.

“In the recent history of our national 7s team, we came to know the bitter taste of failure and sweet taste of success in Friday’s time.

“It is going to be a challenge for Treu to maintain the current pleasant feeling because there will be a lot of hard and smart work needed from him and his coaching panel.

“The squad he will select, the Union, our sponsors and every one else will support, in order to see the national team improve its performance,” the KRU boss said in a statement.

The players have been training under assistant coach Felix Ochien’g and with the arrival of the new coach; the training programme is likely to change.

Kenya will be looking to better her performance on the weekend of November 29-30 during the second round of the IRB Sevens World Series in the UAE.

The former South African 7s tactician, however will have a difficult task to continue where Englishman Friday left, as players have been on dispute with KRU over three months unpaid salaries and allowances.
