South African ace mirrors first season at Kabras

Kabras South African center Mario Wilson has termed his first season with the Kakamega based side as fantastic despite losing to KCB in the Kenya cup finals.

The South African joined Kenya cup action when he came on for the Millers against Strathmore Leos on match day four, going on to rake in several impressive performances throughout the season. He missed just one game, against Mean Machine due to an injury picked up against KCB in regular season.

He believes his side put up a great fight with their main target being to win the Kenya Cup title, the side however failed to bag the title after a 23-15 loss to KCB in their back yard.

Wilson is, however, happy that the side managed to end the season by beating Impala Saracens and Strathmore Leos to lift the Enterprise Cup for first time in history and the Mwamba Cup.

“We worked hard and we really wanted to win the Kenya Cup but we missed out. We made it to the Enterprise Cup and Mwamba Cup finals and we appreciate we won a trophy. We are happy that we ended the on a high. At least we have something to prove our hard work and to end the season on a high.” Mario told Scrummage.

Echoing the words of fellow team mate and country man Claude Johannes, Mario acknowledged the physicality aspect of the Kenyan game saying he had to adapt along the way.

“Remember that  South African rugby and Kenyan Rugby is different. This side its Tang Tang and I had to get used to it. At the start it was difficult  because I came here knowing that am a stepper but found it was more physical so I had to adapt. I picked an injury against KCB in the first meeting and I had to come back stronger. But honestly, I have had a fantastic season.” The center added.

The former Tygerberg RFC man will  be hoping to extend his stay with the Sugarmen.
