Kenya Lionesses head coach Dennis Mwanja has exuded confidence after guiding Kenya Lionesses to the Challenger Series semifinals on Sunday morning.

Lionesses beat Argentina 24-7 in their quarterfinal fixture at the World Rugby Sevens Challenger Series in Santiago, Chile, booking a place in the last four stages of the competition.

Mwanja revealed that his girls remained obedient to the game plan and took each game at a time to remain in top prize contention in the Series.

“We agreed to take it a game at a time, which we are doing. The girls are responding well, they are motivated, they have confidence, they are expressing themselves in the game. We look forward to playing the semifinal and also giving a good account in that match,” Mwanja said.

The Lionesses are now just two games away from attaining core status on the World Rugby Sevens Series, an achievement that Mwanja is eagerly anticipating.

“Making it to the final would be a big bonus for us. The girls are ready. We have struck a rich vein of form which we are going to capitalise on…we are not getting ahead of ourselves but we are quietly confident.”

The Kenyan girls will play either Japan or Belgium in the semifinal at 5.58pm EAT on Sunday.
