Kenya Simbas scrum-half Samson Onsomu says they must take control of the scrums if they are to beat Hong Kong in the second test on Saturday, August 26, 2017 at RFUEA grounds.
Speaking on the sidelines of squad naming on Wednesday, Onsomu admits they had too many errors in the first test that ended in a 19-19 draw.
“We had a bad handling day, guys were dropping balls and scrums were not the best we had so if we improve on our scrums and keep the ball in our hands and play in the best quarter of the pitch am sure we will win the game with a stronger margin,” the Impala Saracens player said.
Both teams ran in three tries and two conversions with Kenya coming from seven points down to level things.
“We expect them to come even harder but by the end of the day it’s about us executing what we have been training and minimizing on some mistakes.”
“They were stronger in the rucks and breakdowns like I said on the scrums if we beat them there they have nothing to offer,” added Onsomu.
Onsomu came in as a substitute in the first Test but he is now set to start on Saturday with Lyle Asiligwa dropping to the bench.
“It’s the same squad, we’ve been training together ever since we were called up so I think everyone is up to the task and we believe in each other,” concluded Onsomu.
The match kicks-off at 4 pm.
