Kenya call on Enid Ouma for Dubai Women’s Sevens

Kenya call on Enid Ouma for Dubai Women’s Sevens - Sports Leo

Forward Enid Ouma has received her maiden call-up to the women’s Kenya rugby squad for the Dubai Sevens starting on December 5.

Ouma has been an integral part of the Lionesses – as the women’s Kenya rugby team are known –  squad after she changed from 15s to Sevens in September.

Lionesses coach Felix Oloo is keen on expanding the player base as part of the team’s preparations for the World Sevens Series and ultimately the Tokyo 2020 Olympics.

She joins a squad of experienced players who have been in the Sevens picture and have participated in international Sevens Series events. Oloo has made only one change from the team that qualified for the Tokyo Olympics in October in the Africa Women Sevens as Janet Owino misses out.

“It’s great to have Michelle Omondi back in the team as well as Enid Ouma who is up for her sevens debut. The competition in the team is also a notch higher and the players are hungry for the game,” said Oloo.

The Lionesses are in Pool C of the International Invitational Women’s Category alongside France Sevens Development, Tokyo Sankyu Phoenix, Belsevens and Aruka Queen Kumagaya.
