After going down to his former employers Kabras, Kenya Harlequins boss Charles Cardovillis has revealed they were let down by too many mistakes and poor decision making while on the attack.
Quins scored first in the clash but went on to concede three converted tries at the other end and lost 21-3. Their efforts to come back in the game were thwarted by Kabras strong defence line.
The coach believes that the neutral fans enjoyed the show by both teams but he is gutted that his charges made mistakes that turned out to be costly while his backline switched off after the opening 15 minutes.
“It was a good contest for the neutrals, they enjoyed it. For me, it was too many mistakes from our end. Our decision making was also poor especially when we were in Kabras red zone, attacking. When you play against a quality side like Kabras they will capitalize on your mistakes and punish you. Our backline was flat, they played for the 10-15 minutes and we did not see them again. They were just all over the place. Our senior players did not turn up for the party,” he said.
The National 7s Circuit winner with Kabras has lauded his former employers for a good display and he has vowed to work on mistakes witness in the clash.
“It is something we need to work on. We have to go back to the drawing board and tweak. Kudos to Kabras they put up a good show,” he added.
Next up for Kenya Harlequins is Blak Blad.
