Shepherd and Spartans RFC founder Nillis Achayo has joined the Kenya Rugby Union as a regional development manager.
Achayo, whose team competes in the Coast Nationwide League, will work closely with the regional development to strengthen the KRU’s programmes and footprints in the regions.
He will also liaise with other organizations also running their programmes and will work to strengthen age grade player pathways across the board.
