Despite his brilliance form this season in the Kenya Cup, Ugandan full back Phillip Wokorach focus is to help Kabras Sugar reclaim the title they last won in 2016 .

Wokorach leads the try scorers chart with 13 tries, six ahead of Mwamba’s RFC Collins Injera after nine matches.

On 102 points, after scoring 13 tries, 17 conversions and one penalty, the Ugandan is targeting team glory – winning the Kenya Cup at the behest of personal accolade.

“At the moment I’m not concentrating on my personal target but the team’s target which is to win the Kenya Cup this season,”he explained.

Wokarach however said that finishing at the top will be a cherished dream owing to the bonus point that come with it.

“That’s(top try scorer) a bonus for me if it comes. I will be thankful to God but my main focus right now is the Kenya Cup then the bonus will come on later.”

Being six tries ahead of Kenya’s top try scorer in the HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series Collins Injera motivates Wokorach to work harder.

“It motivates me and drives me to work harder to continue staying up there since it doesn’t come easy and I also thank God for giving me the opportunity to stay up in the league.”

Unbeaten Henly Du Plessis charges face Homeboyz this weekend at the Kakamega Showground and Wokorach is optimistic that his team will come out tops.

“We’re taking a game at a time and right now all the focus is on Homeboyz … for us we’re looking for a win to help us keep going,”he said.

Homeboyz were the only side that beat Kabras in Kakamega last season, 12-30, and for Wokorach, the weekedn rematch will be differenct

“We have made changes in our game plan so that what happened last year won’t happen again; we have learnt a lot, rectified our last year’s mistakes and as we enter to this weekend’s match we’ll be looking for a win.”

Kabras last won the Kenya Cup in 2016 under the then coach Charles Cardovillis.
