Homeboyz coach keen on replicating last season’s form
The reigning national Sevens champions Homeboyz RFC head coach Simon Adongo is keen on replicating the good form witnessed during the just concluded Kenya Cup season.
The team bagged the Sevens title in a complete show of dominance by winning the circuit with a leg to spare and Adongo believes the team has all it takes to clinch their maiden Kenya Cup. The team is in a tricky Conference ‘B’ alongside last season’s runners up Impala Saracens, Kenya Harlequins, Strathmore Leos, Kenyatta University’s Black Blad and Nondescripts. “Kenya Cup has always been tough but this season things will be different. All teams are investing in the game both physically and mentally. I believe the team has all it takes to put up a good show and even win our maiden Kenya Cup,” he said.
The team will face Kenya Harlequin in a friendly match over the weekend in preparation for the long season ahead. The Deejays had a lion’s share of the national team selection; getting six slots into the team. Alvine Otieno, Bush Mwale, Augustine Lugonzo, Leonard Mugaisi, Cyprian Kuto and Oscar Ayodi were selected into the team and Adongo admits it will be a huge blow although plans are underway to fill the gap should they be contracted by KRU.
“It feels good as a coach to see my players play for the country but at the same time without them, there is a gap in the team. Most of those players missed the Impala Floodlit but we had other players to fill in for them.”
