Kabeberi 7s final most valuable player (MVP) Harold Anduvati says his side, Menengai Oilers, remain optimistic of a cup win at the 2017 National Sevens Circuit after falling to Impala.
Anduvati guided Oilers to Kabeberi 7s final only to lose 22-5 to Impala Saracens but Anduvati says they may be down but not out.
“Tournament has been quite tough but one thing was the belief we had in ourselves and we never wanted to let ourselves down. We wanted to make ourselves proud, move a step forward from where we were at the last tournament.”
“It means we can win a cup and in the next tournament, we want to do it. Every tournament we go, we are learning from our mistakes and perfect in the next one”.
“Final was very tough, being a team we’ve played two times now and being in the final we never knew how the intensity would be but all in all we like our we played,” added Anduvati.
On being named the MVP, Anduvati says this has kick-started his career as Oilers prepare for life at the Championship, Kenya’s second tier rugby competition.
“It means a lot to me because I work hard, believe in God and thank Kenya rugby for all this. More will come.”
Anduvati made the Kabeberi 7s team of the tournament alongside his team mate Ombasa.
Oilers have gone top in the National Sevens Circuit standings after Kabeberi 7s. They bagged 19 points to add to 17 they bagged last week at Driftwood 7s to make it 36 in total and surpass Homeboyz.
