Kenya sevens drop rankings after poor show in at World Series

NAIROBI, (Xinhua) -- Kenya sevens rugby team will hobble back home on Tuesday after disastrous performance in Vancouver, Canada with hopes that they will improve in the next leg of the World Series in Hong Kong next month.

Head coach Innocent Simiyu blamed loss of crucial technical team coach Briton Ian Gibbons, who was in charge of strength and conditioning and other off field problems, to be behind their dismal performance but promised to improve on their tour to the East at the Hong Kong Sevens on April 7-9.

“Strength and Conditioning is critical to this team. We need somebody to take up the role fast,” he said.

Kenya exited the Vancouver leg, the sixth stop in the 12 round series, at the Challenge trophy after losing to Samoa.

The East African nation failed to repeat the same fete achieved in Las Vegas last week, as they were bundled out of the Challenge Trophy after losing 7-26 to Samoa in the cup semi-final.

This left Kenya placed 12th on the Sevens World Sevens. The team, which returns to the country on Tuesday, has collected just 5 points, taking their tally to 40 points after six rounds of the current season.

In Hong Kong leg on April 7-9, Kenya are in Pool B having been drawn alongside South Africa, Canada and France.
