KENYA CUP

KCB admit difficulty in preparing for Oilers clash

KCB coach Curtis Olago has admitted they lacked information on newbies Oilers style of play which made their preparation for their maiden clash hard.
Olago’s charges managed to put five tries past a determined Oilers side in a match that many thought would be a baptism of fire for Oilers. The Nakuru based side only managed a solitary try against the bankers.
After 80 minutes of play, the Bankers claimed a 27-5  win in a match played on  Saturday at the RFUEA.
Olago says the team is happy with the results adding that the wet conditions greatly affected the intensity of his team.
“Everyone feels good after a win. We did not know how they play so it was hard to plan for them but the boys adapted to their formation and style of play,” Olago said in a postmatch interview.
“The wet weather also saw our intensity drop. And really I felt that for the boys they were really working hard but the weather did not do them a favour. We picked up in the second half but it was not where we wanted to be.”  he added.
KCB will be hoping to build on the win as they host Nondies at the Ruaraka Grounds on Saturday. Oilers will host Kenya Harlequins in Nakuru.
