Menengai Cream Homeboyz RFC head coach Paul ‘Pauh’ Murunga expects his side to win the Kabeberi Sevens set for this weekend at the Kenyatta Stadium in Machakos .

The former Shujaa assistant coach said that that there will be no major changes in the team ahead of the third round of the National Sevens Circuit.

Homeboyz lead the circuit with 44 points after two rounds, eight points ahead of Mwamba RFC who sit at position two.

“No much change in the team unless someone is injured because the team is intact and they are winning 25-0 in the finals, so basically you need not to change a lot but just to make sure you rotate the players heading to the remaining rounds,”he said.

The circuit took a two week break to allow the nationals 15s side play in the Africa Rugby Gold Cup match against Tunisia last weekend.

“We had a two-week break to prepare for Kabeberi Sevens; we have brought new boys to the team after some of our players picked injuries in the last outing.”

The Deejayz won the last outing, demolishing Mwamba RFC 25-0 to win their second round after winning the circuit opener against the same team.

“It’s pretty good, we are happy with the boy’s performance despite picking injuries we went ahead and maintained our momentum which enabled us win our second finals in a row.”

Menengai’s  B team won the junior championship, and the coach has been quick to laud the junior side.

“Our team B won; being a development side it has very good characters with very skillful play which means Homeboyz has depth.”

“It’s a well done to the team having 44 points in the first two rounds of the circuit. The boys have played very well so far.

“We are looking forward for the next four tournaments hoping that we will perform well and win the remaining rounds.”

After the Kabeberi Sevens the tourney heads to Mombasa for the Driftwood Sevens to be played from August 25-26.
