IMPALA FLOODLIT

Nondies fire warning shots ahead of Floodies

Nondies coach Willis Foxxy Ojal has said his charges are eager to make a statement at the Impala Floodlit tournament that gets underway on October 13 in Nairobi.
Nondies, three time Floodies champions missed out on last year’s edition and will be out to bag the crown they last won in 2012.
“This should be the year Nondies makes a statement at Floodies. Nondies won the first edition of this tournament in 1983. We won it for the 2nd time in 2002 but had to wait until 2012 to win it again. Our 2018-19 Kenya Cup exploits will also be news-worthy,” Ojal told Impala Saracens website.
New signings
“I believe the rangers who have been putting in work for the past 8 weeks together with a few signings from Kenyatta University who we’ll reveal as soon as pen touches paper, should give us the much needed propulsion to greatness.”

“Yes, we are getting there. At the start of the 7s circuit, we split the team into 2. The Sevens team focused on playing in the 6 legs of the circuit & the XV team was grounded in pre-season training. Our records confirm that this will be our 2nd month of pre-season grinding.
“We have a lot of positives to pick from the recently concluded 7s circuit. I believe we have the right material to counter any form of competition. Our biggest undoing has been within player mentality and the belief that just a little more exertion can win us championships.”
‘Actually, Kenya rugby has very good quality as exhibited in the past 7s competition. The team that wins a match nowadays is always the team whose mental strength and belief trumps the day. Nondies is driving towards a region where we are not only physically and skilfully blessed, but also mentally strong.”
