KCB RFC has received a major boost ahead of Prinsloo 7s scheduled to take place this weekend after its winger Geoffrey Okwach made a comeback from his injury.
Okwach, who had a wrist fracture, joined the squad for training after the second leg of the National Sevens Circuit in Mombasa after the skipper missed two opening rounds of the series.
The bankers, who emerged third after a superb show at the Driftwood Sevens two weeks ago, have accumulated 39 points this far.
Kabras sits at the summit with 41 points while Strathmore Leos are third with 32 points.
KCB Head Coach Andrew Amonde is set to make minimal changes in the stellar squad that traveled to Mombasa County for the Driftwood Sevens edition.
KCB RFC Head Coach Andrew Amonde, who spoke during a training session at KCB Sports Club in Ruaraka, said Okwach’s return a valuable boost for the bankers due to his agility.
“We are aiming for glory having emerged 3rd in Mombasa,” said Amonde.
He added, “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.”
The team led by captain Vincent Onyala will leave for Nakuru on Friday morning ahead of the much-anticipated tournament that is expected to be thronged by thousands of fans.
Onyala said the boys are raring to go after resting sufficiently before the Prinsloo Sevens.
“We know Okwach’s quality and we expect him to inject pace and dynamism into the squad,” opined Onyala.
He added: “The confidence is there, and we will not underrate any team.”
KCB will be aggressively hunting for points in its hunt for lead position in the competition before it heads to Eldoret for the Tisap 7s, the fourth leg of the National Sevens Circuit.
