Kenya Simbas head coach Jerome Paarwater calls on his team to take on Senegal with the same intensity they did against Tunisia. Paarwater describes Senegal as a 'different challenge' after overseeing his side maul Tunisia 100-10.
Senegal comes to the game after conceding 95-0 to Namibia on Saturday, July 8 but Paarwater cautions Simbas from underrating the West Africans.
“I watched their game against Tunisia last year and this one promises to be very physical. It will be a different challenge, they also got one or two quick guys in the back so that’s a different challenge and we must be up to the game and improve on our defence.”
Paarwater still insists they have to work on the defense, as he has said after Germany’s defeat and Uganda’s draw.
“Our biggest challenge is our defence so we must work on that and also our kicking was not good against Tunisia and that’s another thing we will have to work on. After Uganda, we said we must work on our structure which we did against Tunisia.”
Despite scoring a record 100 points Paarwater was disappointed by the two tries conceded against Tunisia in the first half.
“I was definitely very disappointed but that’s rugby and they play to score. We, however, corrected at half time and kept them from our score line."
The Kenya Simbas squad to play Senegal will be named on Thursday, July 13 at RFUEA grounds.
