Circuit open to all, claims Wambua after Kabeberi heroics
- ‘Kulubu’ as they are popularly known top the series with 39 points after the first two legs two points ahead of Kakamega champions KCB who finished fourth in Meru
Mwamba RFC head coach Kevin Wambua believes that the National Sevens Circuit is still wide open after winning the second leg of the George Mwangi Kabeberi Sevens in Meru at the weekend.
The hosts outclassed Menengai Oilers 27-7 in the final after defeating KCB 21-7 in the semi-final to finish the leg unbeaten.
‘Kulubu’ as they are popularly known top the series with 39 points after the first two legs two points ahead of Kakamega champions KCB who finished fourth in Meru after losing 12-17 to Top Fry Nakuru in the best losers final.
“The title race is still wide open and we are not going to put our foot back , we’re just going to put our recovery protocols right and when we resume we continue winning,” he bragged after the weekend heroics.
With the circuit taking a break next weekend before resuming with Dala Sevens to be hosted by Kisumu RFC in a fortnight, Wambua who is also Shujaa’s assistant coach says they have to continue working hard since the circuit is more competitive.
“We’ve to do few reviews and outline areas of concern during this tournament and make sure we improve our strength and make sure we cover where we’re going wrong,”he said.
After their win in Meru, the former Shujaa player added that his charges had prepared well for the tourney after finishing third in Kakamega a fortnight ago.
“The level of competition is very high and we experienced that in Kakamega after losing to KCB in the semi-finals so we had to go back to the drawing board and change our tactics.
“Yes, we had prepared well; I mean the team has a blend of experienced players and upcoming talents’ so getting the mixture right was key to winning the title.”
