Kenya Commercial Bank coach Dennis Mwanja has attributed his team’s victory in the Prinsloo Sevens to improved training.

Mwanja said that his charges played as a cohesive unit and were hungry for the title and this worked the magic on the two -day competition that was staged at the Nakuru Athletics Club on Sunday.

The high riding KCB clinched the Prinsloo Sevens tournament after beating host Nakuru 29-5 in a mouth watering final.

“The team was just marvelous as it was cohesive, sharp in attack and were hungry for the tries and this time around they did not disappoint,” a happy coach Mwanja told Citizen Digital.

His opposite number, Mitch Ocholla, who watched in agony as his Nakuru charges were battered however conceded defeat and hailed the bankers for the big win.

“It was a competitive game and apparently KCB were more focused and put up a good fight and ultimately won the match. We live to fight another day,” said Ocholla.

In reaching the finals, Nakuru crashed Homeboyz 17-12 in a hard fought semi final match and in the second semis KCB overcame Strathmore Leos 14-10.
