It was a successful year for Kabras Sugar RFC after closing the season as Enterprise Cup champions despite missing the Kenya Cup.

Kabras mauled last year’s losing finalists Impala Saracens 37-7 at the RFUEA ground on Saturday to win Kenya Rugby oldest tournament.

Kabras Sugar was the best side through-out the match as they out shined their rivals in every department.  Head coach Henley Du Plessis heaped praises to his boys commenting that they made few mistakes and were able to capitalize on the errors made by their opponents.

“We played the game in an area that we wanted to play and we were technically much better than them in every move we made,” said Du Plessis

“My team had little mistakes while they made a lot of mistakes and we capitalized on those mistakes,”added coach Du Plessis.

Speaking after the win, the Kabras Sugar head coach outlined the plans for the next season on strengthening the squad admitting that the win was vital and important to the team.

“We are going to take a break and let the players regroup for the next season and have a proper off season as well as pre season in preparations for the new season.”

The 2016 Kenya Cup champions came into the final after battering Kenya Harlequins 54 – 11 while Impala Saracens narrowly won 11-10 against KCB in the semi finals. The Kakamega based out fits came to the match well prepared which saw them head to halftime with a 21 – 0 lead.

The coach further stated that the team was going to do reviews to determine areas to strengthen and as they wait for the next tournament.

Kabras Sugar team boasts of players from different nationalities including the finals eventual man of the match winner Philip Wokorach who scored one try and extras. Speaking on strengthening the team, he said that some of the players will be coming back while others will be left out and this will come after a review of the whole team.

“It is something I cannot ignore some of them will be coming back and after the review we shall see who will not be coming back,”

The coach confirmed that Logan Basson, one of the players who had been out of action since March, won’t be coming back to the club and further confirmed that there will be new signings to change the squad outlook.

Kabras also won Mwamba Cup title after smashing Strathmore Leos 40-27.
