Kabras Sugar RFC captain Max Adaka says he is confident his side will blow out Menengai Cream Homeboyz when the two clash during Saturday’s Kenya Cup semi-final at the Jamhuri Park.

The showdown will mark a repeat of last year’s semis matchup where Kabras ran out 22-17 winners over Homeboyz before going on to lose to 36-8 KCB RFC in the final.

Champions KCB will take on Resolution Impala Saracens at the KCB Sports Club in the other semi where the Bankers will be bidding to reach their third final in four years.

Homeboyz have already beaten the Sugar Millers this season when they handed them a 30-12 defeat in the regular season and Adaka has warned his teammates to be wary of the Deejays.

“Homeboyz are a very good side given the fact that they managed to squeeze themselves in the top two positions show the quality they bring in this game and we should not let complacency check in at this stage if we want to reach the final,” Adaka told Citizen Digital.

The numbers seem skewed in favour of Homeboyz but Adaka is adamant his side have enough quality within their ranks to turn tables on their opponents.

“Going to this game I think we should work on a few areas that maybe let us down during the season, especially on our different player combinations team chemistry,” the skipper added.

The 2016 winners Kabras are on the hunt for their second title since earning top flight promotion in 2012 while Homeboyz are seeking their maiden silverware.

The last meeting between the Bankers and the Sarries ended in a 9-9 draw but that league clash was largely frustrated by waterlogged conditions that prevented each side from playing free flowing rugby.

Mark Kwemoi of Impala and KCB Darwin Mukidza will be on the forefront to drill in the much needed points for their teams respectively.

Impala have won the Kenya Cup silverware 11 times their last being in the year 2009, while their rivals KCB have won it five times and are the current defending champions.
