KCB flanker Brian Nyikuli is looking ahead to the 2017/2018 Kenya Cup season that begins this Saturday with the bankers visiting Strathmore Leos.
Nyikuli started for KCB in their win over Impala Saracens at the Floodlit final. He is looking ahead to make a competitive debut for KCB after signing from Strathmore Leos.
“So far everything has been well, it was a very organized tournament, the competition we’ve been able to play has put us in a place where we can try out things and see where we lie,” Nyikuli told Raga House after Saturday’s win.
The former Kenya Simbas captain is hopeful KCB will defend the Kenya Cup but says it’s getting hard season by season.
“The league will be interesting, as you’ve seen now there is no push-over teams look how at how Machine give Homeboyz a run for their money. Even Strathmore vs Quins, I think it will be an interesting season. We need to prepare well, deep big and go for more. It’s a new ball game we just prepare ourselves.”
On moving to KCB, Nyikuli says: “It has been interesting, to be honest, KCB is a very hardworking team. They don’t play names or anything how hard you work is how you’ll able to play. So the last three month I have been working very hard and I think it has been able to pay well for coach to start me at number six.”
After taking on Strathmore Leos, KCB will visit Kisii, host Blak Blad and travel to Nakuru RFC.
