“I am not very happy with our performance, especially from the whole team. We didn’t play good rugby, we didn’t execute the plan which we had. We had stupid decisions and didn’t make the right calls especially in the last minutes of the game. We had a penalty in the last minute, we could have gone for points but we didn’t, so the decision making from senior players was poor. But we head to the drawing board to work on our mistakes, ” the coach told Scrummage.
“I think we needed something like this (a loss) especially after the win against KCB. You need such to bring you back to earth and for the players to realize that any team can beat you any day,” he added.
Kabras stay top of the log but they are two points above Homeboyz and one above defending Champions KCB.
