Kenya Lionesses Head Coach Dennis Mwanja has picked on the positives despite the team’s 48-0 loss to South Africa that all but put paid to their ambitions of finishing top of the Rugby Africa Women’s Cup First Division competition in Antananarivo, Madagacar and claiming a slot to the World Rugby WXV second tier competition.

Action between Kenya and Madagascar at the Stade Makis in Antananarivo on Saturday 20 May 2023. Kenya won this Rugby Africa Women’s Cup match 29-20

Speaking after the side’s match day two loss on Wednesday, the former international said, “We gave away very easy tries in that first half. The experience of South Africa, going for the World Cup and the European Tour, clearly made them a different level than us. We believe the build-up matches would have really made a big difference for us.”

“We have really learnt a lot from this game. There is really no shortcut to experience, ” he concluded.

The Lionesses began their campaign with a 29-20 win over hosts Madagascar on Saturday and must now defeat Cameroon in Sunday’s final round of matches to finish second and qualify for the WXV third tier competition.
