Kabras Sugar, the 2016 champions whipped newcomers MMUST 56-0 in their opening fixture of this seasons campaign at Kakamega  Showground with the  Zimbabwean head coach singling out key areas to be sharpened.

‘’The two biggest areas are communication and execution. We are still not communicating to the level that we should on the field and sometimes not giving right direction through our communication of what we need to do  has direct correlation with  what happens with our  effectiveness and execution. If we improve our communication then our execution will also  improve and that’s our big target going forward’’, Nyathi told KBC Digital Sports.

‘’Kabras fans should just consider a game at a time. We still have another 13 or 14 games to go this season, it’s a long way, let’s take each game at a go and reassess ,take the next game on and that’s the approach we are going to take this season’’, Nyathi said.

Nyathi reckoned that he was dedicated to accomplishing the  team’s thought and playing plan.

‘’Generally people look at the final result as the goal, our approach is not the final result but how we take every scrum, lineout, what decision  we make with penalties, our targets are small targets so if we are ticking the boxes as we play on, that  final result should look after itself as we believe, such that if we are winning our set pieces we should be able to have good attack and if we are attacking well we should have good defense and that would be the criteria to mark our success’’, Nyathi said.

Team Captain Daniel Sikuta who was one of the nine try scorers for the team on Saturday believes  that the performance offered them a glimpse of their shape as they fit into a new playing structure.

‘’The head coach is doing a fantastic job for the team and we are trying to gel in to the team’s new pattern and structure and we hope that by the time we play our third game we shall be at 90% in terms of adopting to  the new system. Since we have no championship matches, ESS, we have more numbers and you can see like we have had eight new players in the game compared to the squad that faced  Kenya Harlequins the preceding weekend in charity cup’’,Sikuta said.
