Mwamba RFC coach Louis Kisia has shifted focus to Kenya Harlequins this weekend after losing 29-15 to Top Fry Nakuru in the Kenya Cup last weekend.

Speaking after their loss, Kisia said they have to go back to the drawing board since the results weren’t appealing for his team.

“It’s not the results we wanted since Nakuru came out strong in the match, we tried to rally behind in the second half but it was too late to overturn the scores.”

The former Mwamba RFC Flanker believes that in the Kenya Cup any team can win or lose.

“We came to Nakuru to collect maximum points unfortunately things didn’t go on our way and the officiating wasn’t to the standards.”

He went ahead to applaud the Wanyores for the win saying that they will plan afresh for their next encounter.

Kulubu are currently fifth in the log with 32 points five points adrift of third placed Kenya Harlequins whom they face this Saturday.

“We’re going to work on our defense which was a bit shaky against Nakuru, our racks; our set pieces were okay although we lost possession in our scrums so basically we will do some scrimmage ahead of our match against Quins.”

“At number five in the log we are still confident of finishing at the playoff position.”

“Our main objective when the season started was making it to the playoffs, and that’s a dream we still believe in, if we make it to the playoff we’ll just do what we do best winning in Mwamba.”

On his part Top Fry Nakuru RFC head coach Mitch Ocholla applauded his charges saying they will use that huge win as a motivation when they face varsity side Strathmore Leos this Saturday at the Athletic Club, Nakuru.
