Mwamba RFC winger Collins Injera believes that the local teams have really stepped up their game making the National Rugby Sevens Circuit stiffer than before which heralds better tidings for the national teams.

“The competition is quite stiff, the local teams have really stepped up and the players are really pushing. New talents are rising so I think it’s a good thing having a healthy competition in the circuit because it also helps when we go back to the national team,” Injera said.

The Shujaa speedster helped Mwamba finish second in the Driftwood Sevens last weekend in Mombasa, and the Kenyan top try scorer in the HSBC Series believes that with the improvement by the clubs will give birth to new talents in the national team.

He also recognized the growth in the competition especially for bringing youngsters to the game which helps them develop with time.

“For them is just simple; to keep on working hard and keep on thriving .Sometimes you might fall short but you can’t stay down, so you just keep thriving.”

Playing his second match in the circuit due to international duties, Injera was impressed by his team’s performance after they rose to second place in Mombasa after finishing fifth in Machakos two weeks ago.

“It was a close affair but we didn’t execute our play well in extra time. We gave out a try during the sudden death so for us it’s sad but also good since we finished fifth in Kabeberi Sevens two weeks ago and now we’re number two,”he said.

Injera at the same time showed remorse to the injured Black Blad players who were involved in a road accident at Mtito Andei area.

“It’s quite unfortunate they never made it to the tournament. I wish them quick recovery so that they can return and join the game that they love.”

Mwamba RFC is second with 72 points, nine points behind leaders Homeboyz.

The fifth round of the circuit will take place on September 8 at the Dala Sevens in Kisumu.
