•Mwamba's two wins have come against Nondies (15-7) and a bonus point win against Catholic University Monks 32-16 last weekend.
•Babu's charges suffered huge defeats to champions Kabras 87-0, 67-0 to Menengai Oilers, 40-10 to Quins, 36-5 to KCB and a shock 24-16 defeat to Blak Blad.
Following a torrid start to the Kenya Cup campaign, Mwamba assistant coach Joseph Babu believes they are headed in the right direction after two successive wins.
The side, also known as 'Kulabu', lost their opening five games of the campaign to sit in the relegation zone but two wins in the last couple of weeks have seen them jump to ninth on the log with nine points.
They also have a favourable run of fixtures and the tactician believes they can sneak into the playoff spots.
“The opening four fixtures were not kind to us. Playing Kabras, KCB and Menengai Oilers was a tough task but credit to the boys—they are back on track and there seems to be light at the end of the tunnel,” added Babu
Babu's charges suffered huge defeats to champions Kabras 87-0, 67-0 to Menengai Oilers, 40-10 to Quins, 36-5 to KCB and a shock 24-16 defeat to Blak Blad.
Babu admitted the loss to the varsity side was unexpected. “ The loss to Blak Blad was painful. We have always matched them favourably and losing to them in that run did not help us,” he noted.
Mwamba's two wins have come against Nondies (15-7) and a bonus point win against Catholic University Monks' 32-16 last weekend.
With fixtures against Strathmore, Kisumu, Homeboyz and Nakuru coming up, the tactician believes they stand a good chance of finishing high on the log.
"Looking at our fixtures and with our current form, we have a good chance. We start with Strathmore on Saturday and we hope to collect maximum points," observed Babu.
On the injury front, Babu said there will be fitness checks on the likes of Kenya Simbas winger Joel Inzuga, Brian Mutugi of Shujaa, flanker Eliakim Kichoi and loosehead prop Deus Mudaki who got knocks during the win against Monks.
“We will check all four of them in the course of training this week to see how they are responding to treatment," added Babu
The club has had challenges in finding a training venue with their usual Railway Club base having been converted to a matatu terminus by the county government of Nairobi.
The team now trains at the Public Service Club, which according to Babu, is not rugby-friendly for the players.
