About the Team

Kenya Women’s Sevens coach Mike Shamiah believes his charges are mentally ready for Brazil and is confident they stand a strong chance of progressing to the knock out round, he told the Citizen Digital.

“The squad has had ample time to prepare and the technical support we got at the camp will go a long way to help us mentally and physically for Rio. There are no injury concerns and the girls are really excited because it’s the first time women’s rugby is being played… so we hope we it will reflect in their performances at the games,” he added.

The Lionesses as the team is know are looking forward to the competition, having beaten the South African women’s team to qualify.
