Impala Saracens coach Oscar Osir has backed his charges to approach their pool B opponents with caution at this weekend’s Christie 7s.
The Sarries have have landed in a tricky pool B at Christie that has Machine,Nakuru and Kisii with whom they share the same shirt sponsor and coach Osir is well aware of the threat the sides pose.
“I think it is an interesting pool. We have lost to all teams except Kisii. Machine beat us in Mombasa – our first match of the 2017 7s series.”
“Nakuru beat us at Prinsloo & we were relegated to the Challenge Trophy. If we take the same attitude we took to Mombasa & Nakuru, the boys know what will happen.”
“What will always be interesting is every time we meet Resolution Kisii, they will want to justify who needs the bigger share of the sponsorship cake.”
“We have enough experience to go through but if we approach it casually, it will be a tough day 1 for us,”Osir told the club’s portal.
Impala will be back at the RFUEA grounds, 4 weeks after lifting the Kabeberi 7s there and they will be hoping to replicate the same yet again at Christie.
