Kabras Sugar captain Max Adaka says they are “well prepared for Saturday’s Kenya Cup top of the table clash with KCB” in the sixth round of the 2019/20 campaign at Ruaraka Sports Club.
Both KCB and Kabras Sugar are unbeaten this season with the clash set to leave one beaten, or possibly still unbeaten.
Adaka, who led Kabras Sugar to the Kenya Cup title in 2016, said: “we've prepared really well. Looking into our games this season, we've been improving with each game.”
Kabras, who lead with 25 points, are yet to beat KCB in the Kenya Cup including three Kenya Cup finals in a row but Adaka believes it doesn’t give KCB a mental strength heading to the clash.
“It really doesn't affect us psychologically. I mean we've been here before and this time around we have tried to cover all the bases.”
“You should expect a good game of rugby and a weekend full of excitement, come out in large numbers.”
“We know each team has improved from what they were last season, meaning we really need to up our game.”
Kabras Sugar’s start to the season has seen five wins in a row; 89-0 over Kisumu RFC, 9-43 over Mwamba, 27-3 over Impala Saracens, 15-40 over Nondies and 57-3 over Blak Blad.
“Well, looking into the amount of work we've put in so far, and the mood and attitude of the players during session, it's gonna be a very sweet season. I'd say it's coz of the will of the whole team to push to be the best.”
Just like last season, Kabras Sugar look like they can finally do it for the first time since 2016 but a long season and other factors will play part in determining with the Kenya Cup title can return to Kakamega.
“We've set standards for ourselves and we'd really love to keep them,” added Adaka.
After the trip to Nairobi, Kabras will host Menengai Oilers before heading to Homeboyz RFC and returning home to face Menengai Oilers to close the year.
