Kabras RFC: We didn’t assert ourselves early in big games

Kabras 7s coach Edwin Achayo believes that they had a poor start in big games and it ended up costing them a better finish at Kabebei 7s.

The Sugarmen are the Series defending champions after having won the National 7s Series in 2017. The 2018 season has been different for the Kakamega based. They are yet to go past the quarterfinal this season with their best performance being in Eldoret where they finished fifth.

At Kabeberi, Kabras went down 31-14 to Kenya Harlequin in the quarters, beat Blak Blad 21-14 but went down to Mwamba 26-19 in the fifth-place finals. Achayo a former Kenya Simbas halfback feels that there are areas that they did well but their major undoing was allowing their opponents go ahead of them.

“There are a couple of things that we did well, and we had a couple of costly lapses. We had most of the games but our start in most of them was poor. We conceded early, then got back to the game but not quick enough. We just didn’t assert ourselves early in the big games.” he told Scrummage.
