Our anonymous guest blogger is fully convinced that Kabras Sugar will defeat KCB on Saturday and add the Enterprise Cup title to their Kenya Cup crown. Here we go…
Popular sentiment and evidence has installed Kabras Sugar as favorites to beat KCB and win a first ever Enterprise Cup even though the form book favours KCB who have beaten the side from the Western Kenya sugarbelt the three times they have met before .
Kabras are after all the Kenya Cup champions, coming good after a grueling 22 weeks of action to lift the league title. KCB have in this season been a pale comparison of the team that mugged Kabras 27-3 to win the previous season’s Kenya Cup.
The team from Western has assembled a formidable playing unit that has rained terror on its opponents. They thrive on simplicity by engaging on a direct style of rugby that wears down the opponents time and again before creating space for their lethal backs to finish off the business.
Their Fijian forwards Sava Racigi and Natabua Apenisa are extremely aggressive operators,well versed in the tang tang rugby they play and will be used to bruise it out and bully the softer KCB forwards who have played lacked the aggression they have been so famous for in past years.
In the backs, Jone Kubu, Jone Navuso and Fabian Olando are the creative sparks and with their silky running should have an easy time against KCB’s one dimensional backs like Billy Isabwa, Ken Moseti and Kilonzo James. Kabras’s superiority is plain for all to see.
Have I mentioned luck and form? So KCB have beaten Kabras three times before but there is a first time for everything. Luck has it that Kabras will win because it is their time.It is written in the stars and the rain clouds that travel with them wherever they go.
They have also been the inform team this season regardless of what people say. They came from the dead to qualify for the playoffs and win the league and have been impressive. They cant have come to Nairobi on Thursday just to lose the final.
The Enterprise Cup trophy is heading to Kakamega “Ingo” and will stay there for a few years as we see the start of a Kabras dominance for years to come.
