Rugby Africa: William Webster takes over Shujaa

Following the sacking of Kenya Sevens Coach Innocent Simiyu last week, the Kenya Rugby Union has since appointed William Webster Briton to take over the helm.

William has been Simiyu’s assistant and his most immediate concern will be getting the Kenya 7s players mentally and physically ready for San Francisco where the Rugby 7s World Cup will be getting underway in July 2018.

Simiyu was sacked after he admitted being the mastermind behind Shujaa players blacking out the “Make It Kenya” brand in the Paris edition of the HSBC World Series earlier this month. This move from the players was prompted by frustration over unpaid bonuses and salaries to the tune of about USD 40,000.

“KRU has mutually parted ways with Kenya Sevens head coach Innocent Simiyu effective immediately. He took full responsibility for the display that saw the playing unit blank out sponsor’s branding in Paris Sevens which negatively impacted our country and sponsor’s image. We are fully aware that the Rugby World Cup Sevens is around the corner and are taking the necessary steps to ensure our participation,” read the official KRU statement.

It was under Simiyu’s tutelage that the Kenya Sevens earned their highest ever total points tally, garnering 104 points this year, a clear upgrade from 63 last year.
