NEWS: New Zealander Paul Feeney has quit his role as Kenya’s technical director, citing uncertainty over the coronavirus situation and the need to be with his family, the country’s rugby union said in a statement Friday.
Feeney, a former Fiji sevens and Western Province coach took over the job last September and also led the sevens team to qualify for the postponed 2020 Olympics in Tokyo.

The process of finding a replacement is underway.
In March, World Rugby postponed all the remaining tournaments in the sevens world series due to the illness outbreak.
