Kenya’s Lionesses will be out to avenge last weekend’s 27-15 loss to Madagascar’s Lady Makis when they face off in the second at Nairobi’s Nyayo National Stadium on Sunday 11 July 2021.
Deputy Head Coach Mitch Ocholla speaking after the captain’s run on Saturday, said, “It will be a big test for the ladies. We just want to check how they’ve improved during the week. We’re planning to start off heavy and soften the Madagascar |Lady Makis using our forwards and then bring in some pace in the second half because we realized they were dominant with their running game, especially on the outside channel. We’re planning to block that channel and play in their half.”
