Pool A

Ndovu v Victoria 4pm

DESPITE losing their home game last Saturday, Protector Victoria coach Robert Sseguya is optimistic his side will win today’s fixture against Kenya’s Ndovu in the Bamburi Rugby Super Series tournament in Kakamega.

Sseguya told New Vision that his side’s 10-3 home defeat by Kenyan side Chui was not because they were a bad side but because they just had bad lack that day.

“We are prepared, the boys are ready and have confidence that they will win. We were better even in the opening game but only had poor decision making an issue we have addressed,” Sseguya stated. 

He further explained that most of the boys were intimidated by the bulky Kenyan players in the opening fixture but they are now confident that the opponents are not immortal.

Sseguya also ruled out releasing U-19 national team winger Solomon Okia to the national senior side the Rugby Cranes that is preparing for the CAR Cup in Tunisia next month till the Bamburi Series tournament is over.
