Top Fry Nakuru RFC head coach Mitch Ocholla is targeting the main cup quarters as the National Sevens Circuit kicks off with the Kakamega Sevens leg this weekend at the Kakamega Bull Ring.

The Nakuru based side is in Pool D alongside Kenya Harlequins, Strathmore Leos and Egerton Wasps.

However the former Shujaa tactician is confident that his charges are well prepared to top the pool.

“We won’t take anyone lightly in the pool stages since Quins and Leos have been champions, and we have also played against Wasps so we have to work hard to top our pool so as to qualify for the main cup quarter finals,” he said.

Ocholla is confident with his preparation after finishing second in the Embu Sevens played a fortnight ago narrowly losing 12-14 to neighbours Menengai Oilers.

“For me the boys are well prepared since we had Embu Sevens where we finished second to champions Menengai Oilers who I think were also well prepared. We just have to adjust our systems and have a winning mentality,” Ocholla reckoned.

‘The Wanyores’ have won the National Sevens Circuit only once in 2015 after collecting 91 points under the leadership of their then head coach Dominique Habimana.

“We’ll take each match at a time in the circuit and ensure we collect as many points as possible in all the six outings to reclaim the title we won four years ago.”

Nakuru finished fourth last year with 80 points, 42 adrift of champions Menengai Cream Homeboyz.
