Kisii RFC chairman Walter Orangi says they will be using Impala Floodlit tournament to test structures ahead of their Kenya Cup debut in November.
Kisii will play Kenya Cup champions KCB in the Impala Floodies quarterfinals with the winner set to take on the winner of Homeboyz/Quins in cup semis.
“We want to use the Floodies 2017 platform to test our structures of play just before entering Kenya Cup. It is here that we’ll better understand the choices to make before the transfer window closes.”
“This being our first time participating, we simply want to explore the atmosphere that makes up top-flight rugby. In a few years, we will definitely start targeting the Floodies silverware,” Orangi told impalasaracens.com.
Kisii is still looking for a new coach but they have since acquired a strength and conditioning coach.
“We have already identified a Strength & Conditioning Coach, a Team Manager & a Physiotherapist whose names I won’t reveal in this interview. We are however still head-hunting for a coach.”
With odds favouring the bankers to bag a win over the Championship winners, Orangi says KCB should not expect a walk in the park.
“I am sure it will not be easy against KCB but we won’t make it a walk in the park for them.”
