Kabras Sugar coach Charles Cardovillis is delighted to have closed the gap between them and Homeboyz ahead of the final two legs of the National Sevens Circuit.
Kabras beat Impala 26-7 to win the inaugural Sepetuka 7s which sees them climb to second with 63 points, five behind Homeboyz.
“We are second five points behind Homeboyz, every team’s main goal is to win the circuit so it’s good we’ve closed the gap and now it’s about going down for the final two tournaments; we need to make sure we are consistent, able to get to the final and maybe even win the next two tournaments.”
Kabras joined Homeboyz, Impala and KCB as the four sides to win a leg after four rounds unlike in 2016 where Homeboyz had won two legs and lost two finals with Impala and Quins winning in between.
“It has opened the race, anyone can win it; from the past few weekends games are really tight, competition levels have improved, teams have gotten better which is good for the spectator and at the end of the day we are just looking to put our head down and see that we can get this overall series,” added Cardovillis.
Kabras ran four tries to beat the Sarries in the Sepetuka 7s final after seeing off Menengai Oilers in the semis.
“Some of the things we were looking to improve from other tournaments was our defence, in Mombasa we conceded only two tries but we said we need to improve our defence and at the same time keep our attack going in which we were able to get the balance right and translate it to the game.
All I can I say is I am very happy for the boys, they have done an excellent job, Focus on some rest and start looking at Christie 7s,” concluded Cardovillis.
Kabras will be seeded top for Christie 7s set for Saturday, October 14 at RFUEA grounds.
