The Kenya Rugby Union has today announced the appointment of New Zealander Paul Feeney as the Kenya Rugby Technical Director effective immediately. In this role, Paul will head the Kenya Shujaa Programme and also support the Simbas, Chipu and Lionesses teams in areas of skills and defence.

Feeney is a World Rugby Level 3 Coach with more than 25 years coaching experience in both sevens and fifteens at the highest levels.

He won the 2005 Rugby World Cup 7s with Fiji and has also worked in the All Blacks set up as the New Zealand’s U20’s Position Specific Coach in 2014 and 2015.

He was Head Coach of Auckland ITM Cup for four seasons and won two national sevens championships with them. His last posting was as Assistant Coach of the Stormers for the past three seasons working on skills and attack.

We’re working on exposing the Morans team to more tournaments apart from the annual @safarisevens. We have already planned for them to participate in this year’s Invitational #Dubai7s.

“I’m grateful to the Kenya Rugby Union for believing in me and giving me an opportunity to work with not only #Shujaa but also #TheSimbas and #TheLionesses at large.” – P. Feeney.

The rest of the Shujaa technical team remains intact: Kevin Wambua as the Assistant Coach, Michael Shamia- Strength and Conditioning Coach, Lamech Bogonko retains the Team Physiotherapist while Eric Ogweno is the Team Manager.
