Kenya Sevens coach Mike Friday has urged Kenya to be consistent ahead of the Dubai and Port Elizabeth legs at the end of the month.
Friday said consistency will be key as they chase more points in the leg. “We played well in Gold Coast and we can’t afford to let standards slip in the next two legs.
We need to be even better in Dubai and Port Elizabeth because the competition will be stiff and intense and we must respond to the challenge thrown at us in the two tournaments,” he added.
Friday said the return of Sidney Ashioya and Lavin Asego will give the technical bench options and make competition for places stiff. ” There are two very experienced players Asego is a playmaker and reads the game very well and Ashioya bring speed and tough defence to the side. They will no doubt play key roles for the side,” the coach said.
The English tactician said the side will not underestimate any team in their pool though it seems easy. “Spain beat England to win the bowl in Gold Coast, Scotland will be out to redeem themselves and Fiji are the team to beat. The pool promises to be quite competitive in Dubai,” he said.
Friday has asked the players who missed out on selection to increase their level of performance with six tournaments remaining. “The talent pool in the country is high and so it’s natural for players to miss out but I am asking them to keep pushing and perform.”
