Kabras Sugar RFC captain Max Adaka says they intend to sweep everything on offer for them this season ahead of their Kenya Cup round nine clash against Harlequins on Saturday.

The clash offers extra spice for table-toppers Kabras as they will be coming up against their former heach coach Charles Cardovilis whose Quins side are third on the Kenya Cup log.

“We know he knows a lot about us having led us to Kenya Cup glory in 2016 but many things have changed for Kabras since Du Plessis took charge,” Adaka said.

Henley Du Plesssis charges head to that match unbeaten with the former Shujaa regular believing that they will fight for their unbeaten run.

“Being unbeaten so far feels good, so for us, as a team, we want to continue with the momentum and our spirit is very high at the moment.”

The Western-based club didn’t play in the first round of the Enterprise cup last weekend having qualified for the pre-quarterfinal, unlike Kenya Harlequins who were in the contest to earn a ticket to the pre-quarterfinals.

“That’s not an advantage for us because they took that match as a pre-match to face us but we had two good weeks of training which to me the team will execute what we practiced in tomorrow’s encounter.”

In other matches defending champions KCB who sits second in the log will play away to varsity side Strathmore Leos at the Strathmore University.

Fourth-placed Nondescripts will play against Top Fry Nakuru at the Athletic Club, Nakuru with fifth place Mwamba playing an early fixture at 2.00 pm against varsity side Blaq Blad at the RFUEA ground.

Sixth place Homeboyz will visit Mean Machine at the UON ground with Menengai Oilers hosting Resolution Impala Saracens at the Afraha Stadium, Nakuru.
