Blak Blad Rugby tactician Michael Tank Otieno believes that his charges have what it takes to earn a playoff berth at the conclusion of the 2017/18 Kenya Cup season.

The students who finished at 10th position with 16 points in 2016/17 seasonĀ  will be out to better last season’s perfomance that saw them flirt with relegation for the better part of the season.

“Our target is to play in this season’s Kenya Cup playoffs and that means we must finish the season among the best six teams.We have managed to avoid the chop for the past four seasons and that shows that we are able to go all the way,”said Otieno in an earlier interview with Scrummage

Tank’s charges will start their campaign with a home tie against Nondies on Saturday,25 November at the Kenyatta University grounds.
