Kayange targeting Moscow return

While not yet fit enough to compete for Kenya on the HSBC Sevens World Series, former captain Humphrey Kayange, is set to play for the country's 'Shujaa' side at the upcoming CAR Africa Sevens in Mombasa at the end of April.

There he hopes he can convince coaching staff that he will be ready to take his place in the pre-Rugby World Cup Sevens training camps at the end of the current Series, in the build-up to the World Cup tournament in Moscow on 28-30 June.
Kayange played for Kenya at round three of the Series in South Africa, scoring five tries, but has not played since then. He is studying at Bristol University in the UK and is currently in Kenya for a two-week holiday, during which time he is training with the Kenya squad.
"I will play in Mombasa with the rest of the team selected and let's see how things go," said Kayange, who observed that the expected conditioning levels had risen under Friday.

"The skill-set is still there and I play for Bristol, but the Sevens environment has changed. The boys are fitter, stronger and faster and in the next two weeks I want to be at par with the rest of the team and I know I will get there," Kayange added.
"It's been a good season for the side with the amount of points we have received so far but they can get better and with the two legs remaining the boys can hit their target," he added.
