Tuesday 9 February 2016...Kenya Sevens returned to the country on Tuesday 9 February 2016 after collecting a combined 22 points at the third and fourth rounds of the HSBC Sevens World Series in Wellington, New Zealand and Sydney, Australia respectively. The cumulative points tally saw Kenya go 8th on the series log.
Speaking on arrival at Nairobi's Jomo Kenyatta International Airport, Head Coach Benjamin Ayimba expressed satisfaction with the team's showing, saying, "what we achieved there, the 22 points, was adequate. We had 10 in Wellington and 12 in Sydney...that was adequate. There is still one or two things we need to sharpen."
Reviewing his side's performance after the opening four rounds, Ayimba said, " We've surpassed what we wanted to do. We wanted to get ourselves out of number 13.We are a strong 8th and it's going to be very difficult for us to be dislodged from that position...a little more effort and we should be good."The series is tough and unpredictable, people appear on the day and are really charged.We must play any game with a lot of zeal."
With Kenya in Pool A for the upcoming USA Sevens alongside New Zealand, Portugal and Russia, Ayimba said, "The series is tough and unpredictable, people appear on the day and are really charged.We must play any game with a lot of zeal. We still have one against New Zealand that we need to sort out, we are looking to clean up and improve our performances."
