Championship side Strathmore Leos have contracted immediate former Mwamba RFC assistant coach Louis Kisia with the main target being to lead the side back to the Kenya Cup.

Kisia told Raga House he’s been contracted for two years and “looks forward to this exciting challenge” with the unbeaten side in the Championship.

“I’m ready for the challenge,” he said. “Rugby is something I have done for some time and this is a challenge I am to.”

“My bid is to come up with new ways we can improve on plays, set pieces and everything else to keep getting results.”

Kisia leaves Mwamba after up to 15 years that came to an end after matchday 6 when Kulabu beat Quins 15-13 at RFUEA.

Strathmore Leos have won all six opening matches with this weekend’s top of the table clash with MMUST featuring the only sides with 100% start.

“Our target is definitely to get back to the Kenya Cup. The road ahead is not as easy as people think. This weekend we head to MMUST and this is a top of the table clash but this is a team that has played at the highest level we definitely want a win.”

“We’ll put our heads up and try to execute what we’ve been training.”

In two years’ time, KIsia wants Strathmore Leos to be a formidable side in the Kenya Cup but maintains that has to start with a god plan now.

“We take every game with the seriousness it deserves. We’ll work hard to secure home semi and final, go to Kenya Cup and stay there not fight relegation, it won’t be easy but we are willing to work hard.”

Kisia joined Mwamba in December 2004 straight from St. Anthony’s Boys High School, Kitale. He has captained the club in both Sevens and Fifteens codes and won numerous titles including the 2013 Enterprise Cup. He joined the technical bench in 2018 and was instrumental in guiding the Sevens team to two runners-up positions in the 2018 and 2019 Stanbic Sevens Circuit.
