Kabras Sugar head coach Henley Du Plessis targets to win the Kenya Cup and the Enterprise Cup this season after finishing the first half of the season at the top of the Kenya Cup table.

The western-based side whitewashed Menengai Oilers 47-12 over the weekend and the South African tactician believes they can go all the way and win the Kenya Cup, and also defend the Enterprise Cup where they were drawn against the Oilers in the round of 16.

“This season we target to get to the playoffs and try to bring the semi finals and finals to Kakamega as well as go all the way and win the Kenya Cup which we lost last season to KCB, and also make sure we defend the Enterprise Cup,”Du Plessis told Citizen Digital.

Kabras will play against their last weekend opponents Menengai Oilers in the Enterprise Cup round of 16 where Du Plessis expects his side to step up and win against the Nakuru based side.

“The draw came out and we’re playing Menengai Oilers in the round of 16 but we’ll not sleep on that competition, we will go all the way and defend it but for now is to go home and celebrate the festive season with our families,” added the South African tactician.

Kabras are at the top of the Kenya Cup standings after match round eight with 35 points, a point ahead of KCB and two points ahead of Homeboyz, and Du Plessis believes they can lift the gong this term.

“This is what we’re working hard for, we want to go for the Kenya Cup trophy, but we still have seven games ahead of us before the Playoffs, but we’ll come back more refreshed and start working hard for next year and see how far we can go but ideally we want to win it,” charged Henley.

Du Plessis acknowledged Dan Sikuta for presenting Kabras in the national team where he had an impressive outing in Cape Town  Sevenswith Shujaa.

“I think he had a good tournament in South Africa and for now we give him time to rest as they prepare for the third round of the Hamilton Sevens in New Zealand next year, so I’m just happy for him for rediscovering his form and as a club we’re pleased he can present us in the rugby field all over the world,” said Du Plessis.
