South African tactician Jerome Paarwater has been released from his coaching role with the Kenya 15s team after a resolution by the board, ending his five year tenure at the helm of the Simbas. The Kenya rugby union announced the development on Monday, but did not disclose who would be taking charge of the team.
Paarwater’s last engagement with the team was at the Hong Kong cup of nations last month when the Simbas failed to win a single match and had been preparing to give the team a shot at the world cup in 2019 with the qualifiers set for next year.
There had been frequent complaints from stakeholders and fans that the tactician was not spending enough time with the team, as he was mostly in South Africa, only arriving some few days to match days.
This season, Kenya won the Elgon cup though nervously against Uganda, finished second in the rugby frique gold cup while losing two test matches at home against Germany and Hong Kong.
