Stanbic Mwamba made it two wins from two tournaments as the Kenya Rugby Union Women’s 10-a-Festival’s second round took place at the KCB Sports Club in Ruaraka over the weekend, and their improved run of form is down to better structures according to coach Joseph Baabu.
“The girls have been giving their all during our training sessions and it is paying off handsomely if these first two legs are anything to go by,” said Baabu.
“Our hard work started last year, we might not have won any leg but we learned several lessons that we have been working on ever since.”
At the start of this year, Stanbic Mwamba changed their style of play and focused on a structured game plan which the ladies have responded to perfectly.
“The fact that we have a lot more leadership in the team is working great for us because of the maturity of several players.
“The decision-making in almost all our matches has been a sight to behold.”
They had earlier won the first-leg at the Kenyatta University grounds by beating Northern Suburbs 19-0 in the final on February 9.
The Mwamba Women emerged victorious after winning all their matches to top the log.
Kulabu secured three clean sheets – beating the Yamanashi Impala 22-0, following this up with a 12-0 win over Top Fry Nakuru, before beating hosts Northern Suburbs 19-0. They, however, conceded just one try in their match against Homeboyz, but still secured the 10-5 win to finish first.
Top Fry Nakuru and Homeboyz were tied on eight points at the end of the festival.
Northern Suburbs finished fourth with seven points, while Yamanashi Impala were fifth with five points.
