Newly-appointed Kabras head coach Henly Du Plessis tagged along two players from the rugby powerhouse nation.

Sevens coach Edwins Achayo confirmed to Raga House that there were two South African players training with the side: one a loose-forward the other one a back-three player.

Achayo however added that the pair were just trialists with a decision on whether to enlist them for 2018/19 season set to be made in due course.

"There are two players from South Africa training with us. They are on trial and the coach will decide whether they are fit for Kabras in due time." said the former Kenya no.9.

Achayo hinted that the club may depart from the norm by making minimal signing, probably upcoming players. Kabras have been known to make signings en masse.

The playing unit is not the only department strengthened as the club has brought in David Ngugi in the Team Manager's capacity.

"The coach may be making a few more recruitments but the club is mainly focusing on young players around Kakamega. 

"David Ngugi is a former Nondies player who has been brought in to help in management."

There have been three exits from the Kakamega Showgrounds: Ivan Chirabu and Pius Ogena have gone back to Uganda while work commitments has forced Brian Bango to relocate to the lakeside city of Kisumu.

"Ivan has gone back to Uganda in search of more playtime. Ogena has also been released while Bango has left for Kisumu due to work commitments," disclosed the former Quins player.
