Kabras Head Coach Mzingaye Nyathi is happy to have gotten maximum points in his Kenya Cup debut match against MMUST played at Kakamega Showground.
The former Zimbabwean International guided the Sugarmen to a 56-0 win over MMUST in what was his first Kenya Cup match in charge. The coach is impressed with how his charges performed in the opening half where they ran six tries.
He, however, admits there was a drop in the momentum in the closing half of the match where they managed to score three times.
“For a start, we got the results we wanted and we are happy with that. If you look closely at how we performed it was almost a tale of two halves,”Mzingaye told Scrummage.

“We came out firing, I don’t know if it is because of the type of opposition we were playing against, we lost momentum in the second half but we will talk to them about that but the important thing is we ticked one box.”
In the closing half, handling errors were witnessed handing their opponents a chance to have possession in the clash. Coach Mzi feels that they played against themselves in the half by trying to force the game.
“The struggle in the second half was due to the kind of challenge they had. They were trying to force a pass where they should have been holding to the ball. That kind of looseness is what played against us,” he stated
“We literary played against ourselves in that we allowed the opponents back in the game a bit, and with a couple of good skills, they (MMUST) came close to our try line but fortunately, the guys scrambled back. The errors were because we tried to force the game,” he added.
Kabras face another newly-promoted side Strathmore Leos and they will be hoping to extend the lead on top of the standings.
