KCB RFC Strengthens its Vault Ahead of Prinsloo 7s

KCB RFC has received a massive boost ahead of Prinsloo 7s slated for this weekend following the return of winger Geoffrey Okwach from injury. The skipper who had a wrist fracture joined the squad for training after the second leg of the National Sevens Circuit in Mombasa having missed the two
opening rounds of the series.

The bankers who emerged third after a competitive show at the Driftwood sevens a fortnight ago have accumulated 39 points so far with Kabras sitting at the summit with 41 points while varsity side Strathmore Leos sits third having garnered 32 points.

“The return of Geoffrey Okwach is a big boost for us because we know what he brings to the table. We are aiming for glory having emerged 3rd in Mombasa. So far, we have been training very well and ticking all our boxes so, we should expect a good show from the boys in Nakuru.”

Captain Vincent Onyala said:

“The boys are raring to go after having sufficient rest before the Prinsloo sevens. We know what we must do, and we will be doing that exactly. Of course, we know Okwach’ s quality and we expect him to inject pace and dynamism into the squad. The confidence is there, and we will not underrate any team.

KCB will be out to hunt for points to take a lead in the competition before heading to Eldoret for the Tisap 7s- the 4th leg of the National Sevens Circuit.
