Nairobi- The Kenya Rugby Union on Tuesday appointed Felix Ochieng as the new Sevens team head coach to replace South African Paul Treu who resigned last week.

Ochieng, who was one of Treu's two deputy coaches will remain in charge of the team for the remainder of the 2014/15 season.

Former Springbok star Vuyo Zangqa and his compatriot, Graham Bentz, who came in as part of Treu's back-up staff, will retain their positions as deputy coach and strength and conditioning coach, respectively.

Kenya have made a dismal start to this season's HSBC World Series under Treu, who resigned after Kenya's 24-5 loss to Canada in the Bowl final at the Nelson Mandela Bay Sevens in Port Elizabeth last Sunday.

Kenya have managed only to collect seven points and are placed 14th on the log after three rounds.

The next round of the series is in Wellington, New Zealand in February next year.
