KCB rugby coach Curtis Olago believes there is room for improvement from his charges despite a 45-8 demolition of Nondies in their Kenya Cup opener over the weekend.
The eight-time Kenya Cup champions ran riot in the second half but Olago was not impressed with the overall performance.
"We were lethargic in the first half. Our game tempo was so slow and our system kept getting lost. We need to improve on what went wrong in the opening match for us moving forward," said Olago.
Olago's charges face Catholic Monks in their second match and the tactician said they will address some of the shortcomings in training this week.
“We will try and sort a few areas in training this week as we look to be sharper this week and put an eighty-minute complete performance this coming weekend."
Try scorers for the bankers were Lionel Ajeliti with a brace, skipper Griffin Musila, Bob Muhati, Michael Kimwele and Felix Ojow.
Sankara Wafula scored the Nondies try with Calvin Sheunda slotting home a penalty but it was a far cry from the 25-23 performance during the Impala Floodlit final which went to extra time in October against the bankers.
Nondies coach Callum Oliver was disappointed with the performance of his charges especially in the second half.
“We competed well in the opening 30 minutes but unfortunately we made some stupid errors in the first 15 minutes in the second half. We could not exit out of their half and we gave them opportunities to score," said Oliver
He noted: "We did not win a lineout for 80 minutes and if you do that against a side like KCB, you can't build any pressure. We are disappointed because it is not how we wanted to start the season," he added.
Callum said they will have to step up their performance in the next match with champions Kabras their next opponents. “It doesn't get easier! We play the champions next and we must improve in our setpiece from the lineout to our defence and other facets of play."
