Kabras Sugar rugby head coach Charlie Cardovilis is an upbeat man and says that their 2017/18 Kenya Cup season targets are on course and things are moving as planned.
The sugar millers finished runners-up last season and having started the 2017/18 brightly, winning all their opening four games and after their game against Mombasa, the team took a 10-day break and resumed training on December 28, and sharing his ambitions for the season with People Sports, coach Cardovilis expressed delight with their run of performance so far in the league but hopes to do even better as action resumes from this weekend.
“The boys have been put through their paces after the holidays and we will now use this week to fine tune our tactics in readiness for the Quins game. We set some high targets for ourselves, and so far we are doing quite well,” said coach Charlie Cardovilis.
Kabras Sugar, the winner of Kenya Cup in 2015/16 season and two times runners up (2014/15 and 2016/17) in their short existence of the club history and having contested in the last three Kenya Cup finals in a row, faces stiff competition from the likes of defending champions KCB in push for this year’s title and fourth straight final berth but to make the fate, coach Cardovilis knows well what awaits them as he puts his systems ready for action.
“The coming month will put our structures to the test. Our attack systems have been improving from last season and we only intend for it to get better. Our defence too has gotten better, with us conceding only five tries in four games, none in the last two,” the coach added.
