KCB RFC captain Curtis Lilako says his side has yet to hit their best form despite yet another solid league phase campaign in the Kenya Cup where the champions trail arch-rivals Kabras Sugar by a point.

KCB, winners of each of the last three Kenya Cup titles, crushed Blak Blad 81-10 in their previous match and have an easy opportunity to secure top spot when they take on basement side Kisumu RFC.

The Bankers head to Kisumu on Friday and will square it out with the hosts on Saturday before facing off with Western Bulls in Kakamega in the next clash.

“So far we’ve just been trying to get back to what we were doing before the Christmas break. From the game we played last weekend I felt we’re still a bit far off but we’re working very hard espcially on our conditioning and defensive structures.

“We just want to tweak the few errors we’ve committed in the past few matches and just try to be more solid as we head into the playoffs,” Lilako said.

Lilako will skipper the strong squad that comprises of 2019 KCB Most Valuable Player Oscar Simiyu, Kenyan international Darwin Mukidza and Shaban Ahmed while David Chenge, Arthur Owilah, Martin Owilah, and Oliver Mangeni have been rested.

KCB will face off with Kenya Harlequins on February 1 ahead of Enterprise Cup round of 16 clash with Strathmore slated to take place a week later.

The team steamrolled Blak Blad last weekend, running in 13 tries and 8 conversions as they beat them 81-10.

Seventh placed Stanbic Mwamba, Kenya Cup semifinalists last season are at home to sixth placed Top Fry Nakuru at the Railway Club.

The two sides had forgettable outings last weekend, Mwamba losing 30-14 on the road to Menengai Oilers while Nakuru fell to a 38-0 home defeat to leaders Kabras Sugar.
