Sources close to the Kenya Rugby Union (KRU) says that the union has been forced to terminate McGrath’s contract since they can’t afford to pay his salary after Kenya Sevens was relegated from the World Rugby Sevens Series last season.

“The KRU Board isn’t able to pay him, especially at this time when the team is relegated,” said the source, adding that they agreed to part ways mutually.

McGrath took over from Innocent Simiyu who was fired on May 11 last year before the Briton was unveiled as the new coach three days later.

Former Mwamba Rugby Club coach Kelvin Wambua will take over as the new head coach and he will be assisted by South African Carlos Katywa and former Kenya sevens skipper Andrew Amonde.
