MMUST head coach Ochieng Ahaya says his charges are in the Kenya Cup to stay after earning promotion over the weekend in Kakamega.

The varsity side outclassed Mean Machine 21-12 in the Championship playoffs semi finals and according to Ahaya MMUST has proved to be big boys and they’re ready for any challenge in the top tier competition.

“We’re going to strategize and stick in the Kenya Cup, our boys have just become the big boys in terms of thinking and we’re ready to challenge any team this campaign,” said Ahaya.

Ahaya also slammed Machine’s game tactics.

“I don’t know where Kenya rugby is going because rugby should be everything, not just scoring penalties and drop kicks and you feel you can play in the Kenya Cup when you cannot score tries,” explained the ex-basketballer.

MMUST scored three converted tries against Machine’s four penalties.

“We came to play rugby and scored three converted tries but what we met was totally different against our expectations, but we still respect them,” added Ahaya.

This will be their first time the varsity side will be playing Kenya Cup since it was formed eight years ago. They kick off their Kenya Cup campaign against defending champions KCB on Saturday, Feb 27, 2021 at the Ruaraka Grounds in Nairobi.
