Blak Blad RFC loose forward Dennis Opiyo is confident the students can turn around their series of woeful stricken perfomances, and avoid relegation, before the season comes to a halt.

Opiyo, who was speaking after their severe 81-10 battering to title holders KCB on Saturday 11 2020, said it is a “deja vu” affair to them, as in 2016, they faced such a similar relegation scare, in which they prevailed.

“We are not going to get relegated. We have been in this place before, back in 2016. We visited Western Bulls in a relegation threatened match and we won, thus surviving the cut. It is just a matter of getting our heads straight and working towards our improvements. We are definately going to bounce back in the upcoming matches. There are some games that we lost narrowly and thats the mistake we will be working upon.” he told Scrummage.

Blak Blad who currently sit eleventh on the log, three points shy of bottom placed Kisumu, and only a single win to their name, were classly outplayed by KCB, and Opiyo was keen to identify what worked towards the defending champions favour.

“They (KCB), had a lot of territory and capitalised on the many penalties that we conceded. In the first half, we only managed to visit their territory once or twice where we got the first three points, while in the second half, it was just once, when we scored. We really tried our best but their good defence turned over every of our move,” he said.

With only six weekend fixtures remaining, Blak Blad are cautiously seeking to turn their misfortunes around. It is five points that separates them from safe zoned, and their next weekend opponents, Western Bulls.
