Kenya drawn in tricky IRB group
The Kenyans will open their campaign against Argentina, who they have met twice this season-winning one match and losing one. They will proceed with a clash against Russia, before completing their fixtures against series leaders and winners of Glasgow leg New Zealand . Kenya will be boosted by their performance in Glasgow, where they won the Shield after beating USA 22-14 in a topsy-turvy final on Sunday. Coach Mitch Ocholla expects his side to increase their points haul in the next leg in London. “We lost our three matches on Saturday but the boys showed character to win the two matches on Sunday and clinch the Shield category on Sunday,” added Ocholla. Kenya still have to improve in their ball retention and tackling if they harbour any hopes of qualifying for the Main Cup quarter-finals in London.
