Where is Logan?

After a blistering start to the 2018/19 Kenya Cup season, Kabras Sugar fly-half Logan Basson has not had things go as he expected and thus chose to return to his home country, South Africa as Raga House understands. 

Logan's last game for Kabras was against Kenya Cup champions KCB at Impala Club on Sat Feb 23 where he had little influence despite going into the match in his best form. KCB won the game 44-20 ending Kabras Sugar's unbeaten run though the 2016 champions are still on top.

Logan missed games that followed, against Machine at UoN, Blak Blad in Kakamega and recently Top Fry Nakuru at NAC. 

He had scored 28 points in the Kenya Cup -four tries and four conversions but his defence had been questioned severely especially in the defeat to KCB. Raga House understands Logan chose to return home before communicating with his side that he won't be coming back to Kenya. 

Kabras Sugar head coach Henly Du Plessis however says Logan left for South Africa due to family issues. 

Ugandan international Philip Wokorach and Kevin Keegan have been fielded at fly-half in those matches while Fijian Jone Kubu has since been promoted from the ESS squad to cover the fullback position when Wokorach is playing 10. 

Logan arrived at Kabras in October 2018 accompanying new head coach Du Plessis. That was alongside Enzo Fouttie, Logan Basson, Claude Joannes and Mario Wilson. 

Kabras Sugar currently lead the Kenya Cup log with 64 points as they seek to win their second Kenya Cup title in four years. Finishing top will see the Kakamega based side host the final for the first time in history. They lost 2018 and 2017 finals to KCB, both played at KCB Sports Club in Nairobi. 

Kabras' remaining matches are against relegation threatened Strathmore Leos at home and Impala Saracens away.
