It has been exactly 9 days since the KCB Lions boarded the plane to Cape Town for their 2018-19 Pre-Season preparations. While in South Africa, the team, coached by Curtis Olago & is current Kenya Cup & Impala Rugby Floodlit defending champions has been working closely with renown Western Province technical bench members namely former Kenya XV Head Coach Jerome Paarwater & Forwards Coach Hanyani Shimange.
Speaking to our media team from Newlands via WhatsApp call, at the foot of the iconic Table Mountain with a beautiful facade of the mountain standing under a clear blue sky, Dennis Mwanja, Assistant Coach – KCB Lions confirmed, “Our preparations for the 37th edition of the Impala Rugby Floodlit Tournament are going on well here in Cape Town. We are driving into fifteens mode & have learnt a lot of new things while here. We look to assimilate and sharpen them before the season starts next weekend. I must appreciate that this time round, the competition against us will be tougher. I know that most teams will want to prove their mettle against us. I am looking forward to the draw, but we are not in any way looking forward to meeting a particular team next weekend, because history has taught us that sooner or later, you always meet the team you always never wanted to meet on day 1. We’ll approach every game at a time.”
When asked if KCB feel ready to defend the Floodies 2018 trophy, he asserted, “I believe that our ability to gel youth and experience will definitely give us the edge to give rugby fans in Kenya something to speak about this season. Defending the Impala Rugby Floodlit Trophy is top of our agenda & we urge everyone to secure their ticket. “Come watch the Lions roar next weekend,” he concludes.
