Northern Suburbs: Where we lost it against Strathmore Leos


Northern Suburbs Coach Simon Jawichre says failure to deal with their opponents in the closing half cost them in their clash against Strathmore Leos on Saturday.

Suburbs Kenya Cup dream came to an end following a 23-6 loss to the Leos but they never went down without a fight. The side held their hosts to a 3-3 draw in the first half, scoring first in the clash.

In the final half, they managed three more points but allowed their opponents to score 20 more points that put the game beyond their reach.

Jawichre is happy with the way his starting squad handled the first half though he feels they should have worked more in the second half to be on the safe side.

“We came to play and started off the right foot. The personnel we deployed to start with had the job at hand and they did the task well. We kept the tempo high and rattled them somehow. We expected them to come harder so we needed to be on the front foot in the second half,” Jawichre told Scrummage.

“A few technical issues on our side, they scored one, two tries and we dipped that is where we lost it,” he revealed.

Northern Suburbs were featuring in the KRU Championship campaign for the first time.
