• Treu quits Kenya

    Paul Treu will step down as Kenya coach after the PE Sevens this weekend.

    The former Blitzboks coach only signed a three-year contract with Kenya a year ago, but has decided to leave after his team earned just four points from the first two tournaments of this season's World Series.

    'I must thank Paul for the professional manner in which he has conveyed his decision to me,' KRU chairman Mwangi Muthee said in a statement. 'I admire his bravery of venturing into unfamiliar waters, leaving the comforts of an advanced rugby nation, such as South Africa. A lot of Kenyans respect and salute him for that.'

    Treu did not give any reason for his decision to quit, but there have been recent off-field issues with a player strike over contracts and a government task force report, which was slammed by Treu, claiming banned substances were found in supplements given to players.
