Kenya Sevens coach Paul Feeney quits

Kenya Sevens head coach Paul Feeney has left his role by mutual consent with the Kenya Rugby Union (KRU) who announced his departure on Friday.

KRU said Feeney left the role at the end of April this year owing to the uncertainty around the COVID-19 situation and the need to be at home with his family in New Zealand.

Under his stewardship, Shujaa won the 2019 Rugby Africa Men’s Sevens in Johannesburg, South Africa, a result that secured qualification to the 32nd Olympic Games which will now take place in Tokyo, Japan in 2021.

The former Fiji boss also guided the Kenya Morans to Cup final victory at the 2019 Tusker Safari Sevens but was unable to complete the ongoing sevens world series due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

KRU said the process to fill the vacancy arising from his departure is currently ongoing.
