Kabras Sugar RFC head coach Henley Du Plessis says the move by the Kenya Rugby Union to suspend all league matches will negatively affect all the rugby teams in the country.

 The South African tactician believes that the suspension will affect the teams’ rhythm and fitness thus affecting games when action resumes.

“Training without having competitive matches matches will slow down the teams consistency and form ” said Du Plessis. The tactician added his charge will keep on traini as they await further instructions.

KRU made the decision to suspend the 2019-2020 season following a directive by the Government, coming hot on the heels of the outbreak of the coronavirus.

The union suspended last weekend fixtures and extended the suspension to the entire league a move which rubbed the Millers coach on the wrong side.

Kabras, together with KCB RFC, are in the semis of the 2019/2020 Kenyan Cup playoffs, but it remains unclear when the matches will be played following the pandemic.

Kenyan league is not the only suspended circuit as the Corona epidermic has seen the World 7s series come to a halt as the world puts measures to combat the virus.
