Kenya Harlequins assistant coach Benjamin Ayimba goal is to keep consistency in the Kenya Cup so as to reach the play-offs stage at the end of the season.

Quins who are currently fourth on the log resumed training last weekend as they look forward to a clash with Top Fry Nakuru on Saturday next week when action resumes on Kenya Cup after the Christmas break.

“Heading to Christmas break we were in the fourth position, so we are hoping to keep that consistence so that we can make it to the playoffs of the Kenya Cup.”

Ayimba, who guided Shujaa to victory in the 2016 Singapore Sevens, added that their target this season is rebuilding to a stronger team, and according to him, they are on course of attaining their target.

Next weekend Quins play host to Top Fry Nakuru at the RFUEA ground and Ayimba believes it won’t be a walkover.

“As you know Nakuru RFC is not a weak team and coming from the festive season it will take a while before we get our groove back on, but then we intend to give a good account of ourselves so that we can maintain our position.”

The former Shujaa player and head coach has also hailed his working chemistry with head coach Charles Cardovillis, terming him “one of the greatest coaches” in Kenya.

“Cardovillis is one of the best coaches. We played against each other, played together in the Kenyan team, and he has also coached the Kenyan side so I have known for a long time and we have a very good chemistry.”

Ayimba who has also served on the technical bench of Homeboyz and Kisumu RFC will be aiming to help Harlequins win their first Kenya Cup title since 2012.
