Mwamba tactician with mixed feelings after win over Impala

Mwamba RFC Kevin Wambua tactician has commended his side after their win over Impala Saracens but he is not happy with the level of discipline shown by his charges.

The side picked a 20-16 win from the clash staged at Railways Club on Saturday 19 April and took their winning streak to four matches in a row.

Wambua feels that they were erratic in some parts of the game and did not push Impala to the limit as they had planned. He is however delighted that Kulabu were able to pick a win.

“I would like to applaud the boys for getting the victory. We never really hit all the cylinders as the way we thought we would do. It was a game of ups and downs and the boys were a bit erratic. It was not the best of our games but we managed to grind and got the victory against a solid Impala side,” Wambua told Scrummage.

Mwamba had to finish the clash with two men out, following a yellow card and red card to Horace Otieno. Commenting on the discipline in the clash, the coach said they had really worked on discipline and tackling in the week and he never expected high tackles to emerge.

“In terms of discipline, we let ourselves down. On Monday we worked on defence, organization but we had a lot of high tackles in the match, we had a red card and yellow card towards the end and that brought up pressure. But I have to applaud them because we played with two men down and got a win, ” he added.

Mwamba face a tough test next weekend as they will make a long trip to Kakamega to face Kenya Cup league leaders Kabras RFC.
