With the Tokyo 2020 Olympics getting closer, the Kenya Rugby Union has kicked off preparations with the appointment of Innocent Simiyu as the Head Coach of the national team.
Simiyu topped a list of local tacticians that included four candidates Dennis Mwanja, Paul Murunga and Nick Wakley.
The Kenya 7s team qualified for the Tokyo Olympics in 2021, but the HSBC World Sevens Series seems to be in doubt with the Dubai / Cape Town and New Zealand / Australia legs cancelled due to the effects of the Covid 19 pandemic.
Namcos as he is fondly known is a former Kenya International and handled the team on the Sevens World Series between 2016 and 2018.
He steered the team to 12th position with 63 points during the 2016/17 season before guiding them to 8th position with a record points tally of 104 points during the 2017/18 season.
