Kenya Harlequin have called out the state of officiating in Kenyan Rugby as the club continues to register poor results at the ongoing Stanbic 7s.
Quins, via head coach Charles Cardovillis, released a statement on Saturday evening after day one of the Kabeberi 7s on "consistent questionable officiating."
"Rugby officiating in both the Kenya Cup and the sevens series this year has been on a whole different level of horrific."
"Refferees have determined the outcomes of games with poor calls on pivotal plays. When officiating changes a team’s W-L record, that should be a big concern to all key stakeholders of the game."
Quins lost all five matches played at Kakamega 7s last weekend with things moving from bad to worse yesterday as they lost two pool matches.
"The refferee officiating body has been consistently tone-deaf to the growing concern regarding the state of its core of referees and their competence in game situations"
"Nothing has changed over the years and the national teams will continue to struggle if the poor officiating continues. We were robbed today and such events kill the morale of the players, who all they want is fair play"
Quins only win came against Egerton Wasps whom they beat 24-0.
They dropped to challenge trophy where they'll play Strathmore Leos with the loser set to be relegated to division two of the Dala 7s.
