KCB’s focus shifts to taming Wanyore this coming weekend in a hunt to bank their fourth straight title-cum-their sixth overall. The bankers' team manager admits Homeboyz piled inevitable pressure on them for the better part of the first half until they went for a break to remind them about their Lion’s pride and what was at stake.
“At the break we did not tell them much other than to remind them to get back the spirit of winning and to play their hearts out at two hundred percent. Darwin Mukidza made our hunt possible by capitalizing on their errors with successful penalties to make it thirteen points in total that he scored for us in that match,” said Ronney Kangeta.
KCB’s mental strength saw them resuming the second half with renewed energy and vigour to score an unconverted try and three penalties as Homeboyz scored three points off a penalty. Homeboyz lost focus in the second half following their manageable errors that gave KCB an advantage that was quickly converted into points to win the match 28-19 and remain on course to defending their title.
KCB will take on Top Fry Nakuru as Impala await a Ngong Road derby against their usual rivals Harlequins in a match that promises sheer emotions as the neighbors fight for bragging rights.
