Kabras tactician provides assessment of new signing Walter Okoth

Kabras head coach Henly Du Plessis believes new acquisition Walter Okoth is destined for a good spell with the Kakamega based-side, after a fine show on his debut. 

Roped in from Nakuru RFC to fill the void of the injured Nick Barasa, Okoth marked his first game for the millers with a well-worked try, and Du Plessis believes the centre, although there is room for improvement, has already mastered the culture at Kabras.

“He has been working hard adjusting to his new environment. His skill set is really improving and that’s important. He is also adjusting to our systems of play and fitting in well. He is getting used to the culture at Kabras,” said Du Plessis while speaking to The Scrummage.

The tactician also confirmed Nick Barasa, who has been sidelined since December 2019 with a recurring knee injury, is still undergoing treatment, with his returning date yet to be confirmed.

“Nick (Barasa) is still busy with rehab and we have been keeping a close monitoring on him. At the moment we are not sure when he will be back,” he said.

Kabras who currently sits top of the standings with 60 points, one point adrift second-placed KCB, will be looking to avoid any slip up with only three fixtures remaining. They travel to face Impala next on February 15.
