Kenya at the 2019 Canada Sevens

Kenya’s performance at the 2019 Canada sevens is perhaps the worst in the history of Kenya sevens. Aside from the fact that Kenya was fielding a team of novices who had no prior IRB series experience, the distinct lack of fitness was evident. Because of all the shambles surrounding the Kenya team in 2019, most of these players did not undergo pre-season conditioning. And their lack of fitness was glaring especially when the team had to play in back to back weekends.
