Kabras are set to face KCB in yet another final showdown of the 2023/2024 Kenya Cup season.

Kabras Sugar's head coach Carlos Katywa  has issued a challenge to their long-standing rivals KCB, ahead of the Kenya Cup final this season.

Following their decisive 37-09 victory over Nondescripts, Katywa, displaying confidence, stated that they had already geared up for the final clash against either KCB or Menengai Oilers.

“Without any fear or favor to say, we were just waiting for either (Menengai Oilers or KCB) because we planned ahead; we had already planned for the finals for either. 

“Not to sound cocky, I don't think there is anything we can put into the players to change anything, it’s a matter of doing a reflection of this game and then looking into the KCB versus Oilers game - and see what they did differently and where we can exploit them and what new trends they have.”

Additionally, Katywa acknowledged the need to address errors exposed during their semi-final encounter with Nondies to ensure the team's readiness for the final showdown.

"We've got some work-ons for the next two weeks," Katywa commented on their preparation timeline.

 "I'm very proud of my forwards, we've dominated upwards but I can't say the same about the backs - there was a lot of poor decision making."

Meanwhile, Nondies assistant coach, Moses Wanyanga, conceded to Kabras Sugar's superiority on the field, particularly in the scrums.

 Despite the challenges faced by his team, Wanyanga expressed pride in their journey back to the Kenya Cup from the Championship.

Acknowledging Kabras' professionalism and skill, Wanyanga stated, "Kabras are definitely a good side; a fully professional side, they are strong, they train hard, skillful and one of the best teams in open play in the country."

With the final scheduled to take place at the Kakamega Showground on March 31, 2024, the stage is set for a highly anticipated showdown between Kabras Sugar and KCB, promising an exciting display of rugby prowess.
