KCB RFC head coach Dennis Mwanja is adamant that the return of the national rugby 15s team players will help his charges reclaim the Dala Sevens trophy in Kisumu this weekend as the National Sevens Circuit resumes.

The bankers are second on the log with 37 points after the first two legs, two points adrift of Kabeberi Sevens champions Mwamba RFC after winning the first leg of the series in Kakamega before going down to fourth in Meru.

“The squad that won Kakamega Sevens is back in place and we’re confident of reclaiming the trophy we lost to Mwamba a fortnight ago in Meru,” he charged.

Skipper Jacob Ojee and Andrew Amonde who were with Simba in the Victoria Cup tourney in  Zambia and Zimbabwe, join Vincent Onyala and Levy Amunga who missed Kabeberi Sevens due to personal commitments.

Mwanja will however miss the services of flanker Isaac Njoroge who got injured in Zambia while playing for Simba.

“Njoroge got an injury in Zambia and we’re going to assess him through our medical team and give a full report of his condition,” he explained.

KCB are in Pool D for the Dala 7s alongside Menengai Cream Homeboyz, varsity side Blak Blad and the Kabeberi Sevens runners- up, Division Two side  Vihiga Granites.

“We’re confident of collecting all the points in the group stages, we respect Homeboyz since they’re a strong side but we’ve already beaten them twice this season so I believe my boys will go all the way and win Dala Sevens,”he enthused.

KCB will be looking to improve their performance this season after finishing third overall in the circuit last season.
