Kabras Sugar head coach Henley Du Plessis is aiming to collect maximum points when he leads his charges to a potentially bruising match with Impala Saracens dubbed “the battle of the unbeaten” in a Kenya Cup clash this weekend at the Kakamega Showground.

Kabras demolished Strathmore Leos 62 -13 over the weekend and the confident South African tactician says they are not going to change a lot technically but beef up their intensity in training as they hunt for a win.

“We aren’t going to change a lot in our preparation; we started to work on our strategies in the last four weeks. We just want to work on our intensity in training.”

Both Kabras and Saracens are unbeaten so far this term but the 42-year-old Du Plessis added that they will focus on dominating the forward play since Impala have a good back line and will concentrate much in the scrums.

“I have been watching a couple of matches Impala have played and they have a strong backline which means they focus much in the scrums so we will take them in the forwards and try to dominate more in front and stick to the same strategy we have used in the past games,” he said, revealing his intended weekend game plan.

The former forwards coach at the Currie Cup side Boland Cavaliers says they won’t focus much on getting bonus points in the match but on winning it.

“First, we are going for the win; I think it’s important for us to focus on that and then see if we can get bonuses which will be important for us at the end of the season,” Cavaliers explained.

According to Plessis, he has all but decided on his squad for the weekend game though he won’t mention their names as he bids to get the opponent flat-footed.
