What you need to know:

  • Feeney said the qualifier was won back in Kenya where the team went through 11 weeks of hard work, determination and discipline
  • Kenya had last won the diadem in 2015 while Uganda lifted the trophy in 2016 and 2017 before Zimbabwe in 2018
  • Skipper Andrew Amonde opened the assault on Uganda after he cashed in on a penalty at the 22 metre zone before slicing through the middle to land

Kenya Sevens head coach Paul Feeney has hailed his team’s astute defence and attack that saw them prevail against their continental rivals in South Africa to qualify for the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games.
