Simiyu targets good start in Canada

Kenya Rugby caught up with Shujaa Head Coach Innocent Simiyu ahead of the sixth round of the 2017/18 HSBC Sevens World Sevens, the Canada Sevens taking place on 10/11 March at the BC Place in Vancouver, Canada.

“We have a tough pool though we’re playing France and Fiji again as well as Spain for the first time this season. It will be interesting to see how the boys play this weekend,” said Simiyu.

Speaking on his side’s objectives heading into this round of the series, Simiyu said, ” Key focus has been on our preps so that we ensure we start well and finish well, hit our performance targets early and consistently.”

“So far the players have responded well, thanks to Kim and Lamech who have managed to get them to 100% recovery after Vegas, they are eager and ready to go,” concluded the former Kenya captain.
