NAIROBI, Kenya, June 7 – The Kenya Lionesses intend to approach this weekend’s Roma Sevens a game at a time.
This is according to Head Coach Mike Shamiah who spoke to Kenya Rugby from Clermont-Ferrand,France, where the team has been attending a training camp courtesy of World Rugby.
“The draw is yet to be conducted for the Roma Sevens but there is every likelihood that we may be paired with Venezuela, South Africa and a French select side and we intend to take every game as it comes. We hope to top our pool and move to the knock out stages.”
“It is quite amazing for our team. We have put in a lot more sessions with the girls and they are really paying off. We have had various skills polished and have changed our playing style. Our mental and physical preparation has also been amazing and we hope that this pays off moving forward to this weekend’s tournament as well as the Olympic Games in August,” Shamiah added.
Meanwhile back at home, action resumes in the Enterprise Cup this weekend and KCB have confirmed the Impala Club as the venue for their semifinal clash against Pan Africa Strathmore Leos.
