Home­boyz coach keen on repli­cat­ing last sea­son’s form

The Star (Kenya) - - Sports Local -

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.”
