KCB assistant coach Dennis Mwanja lauded the resilience of his charges after beating Strathmore 33-18 to keep their unbeaten run in the Kenya Cup.
Mwanja said the introduction of scrumhalf Brian Wahinya changed the match for the bankers after the varsity side had caused them problems thorughout the hour.
“We made a few mistakes in the second half. Leos had a lot of questions that we lacked answers to. We were poor in our ball handling but I’m grateful that our boys fought back to reclaim the lead and win the game,” added Mwanja.
The tactician said the tougher tests will come, especially against champions Kabras and last season's runners up Menengai Oilers next month.
"This test will serve us well going forward especially knowing that we are meeting tougher rivals. It showed our true character which will help us going forward,” added Mwanja.
Man of the match Wahinya said he was delighted with the performance and result.
"Today’s win is a testament to our unending desire to always leave a mark in all our matches. Leos are a strong side but our valiant display proved that a win was the only foreseeable result,” said Wahinya.
