After knocking Kenya Harlequins out of the Enterprise Cup, Homeboyz tactician Jason Hector believes his charges have started showing healthy signs.
The Deejays were able to revenge last year’s 23-20 loss to Quins which saw them relinquish the Enterprise Cup. Hombeoyz beat the Ngongroad based side 39-13 on Saturday to reach the last eight. It was the third win against Quins this season.
Speaking after the win, the South African coach stated that there were a lot of positives to take home. The coach is delighted that his side is improving each week and it is on course to achieving depth which was key in their win.
“Depth worked for us, we had a couple of positional changes, Tunjams (Michael Wanjala) played at 10, young Reinhard Ngaira at flanker. We are starting to show some healthy signs, am not saying we have the required depth but we are on the right track. We will keep on working and trying to improve. Quins came out ready for us, targetted a few areas of our team but our players worked hard,” he said.
Despite being one of the sides touted to bag a silverware in 2020 due to their impressive displays, the coach holds that he will be taking a game at a time. He termed their quarterfinal qualification as a major improvement from last season where they were sent packing in the first round.
“We take each match seriously because it is disrespectful to take your opponent lightly. Qualifying for the second round is a step higher than what we achieved last season and that is a positive for us,” he added.
Homeboyz will be back in action on Saturday to play Menengai Oilers in Nakuru on Saturday.
