Kabras assistant coach Edwin Achayo has praised his side’s youngsters performance in the just concluded 7s circuit.
The former Kenya Simbas half back was also full of praise of the courage displayed by Felix Makokha, who was playing for the first time in such an environment and was ever present in all the legs they played in.
“Some of the lads had never been in this set of environment before. A player like Felix Makokha had never been in such a competitive environment, but he stood up and acted more as a leader. He is my stand out player across the series. Jeanson (Musoga) and the other lads also did their best,” he told Scrummage.
The millers who finished at a disappointing ninth position, managed 42 points from five legs, having missed out at Kabeberi 7s, and Achayo was convinced with his young guns show at the campaign.
“We picked some senior guys to lead the youngsters, who I think put in some impressive performance,” he added.
Kabras who finished fifth with 62 points in last season’s circuit, made a slow start to the campaign on home soil at the Kakamega 7s, where they failed to qualify for main cup quarters.
A challenge trophy defeat to Mwamba at Dala after missing the Kabeberi 7s followed, with their best performance in the circuit coming at Driftwood 7s, where they saw off Nondies to a 5th place finish.
