Former Kenya Cup champions Kabras Rugby Club, will debut in Mombasa County. Sitting fourth on the standings, the sugar millers will be hoping Nakuru use their home advantage at Suguta Valley when they host the defending champions KCB, or alternatively deny them a bonus point win from that match.
Kabras fall short of a point to be at par with the log leaders KCB and the Coastal tour against hapless Mombasa RFC at the Mombasa Sports Club is a good bet according to head coach Charles Cardovillis. “We will definitely be looking for the five points.
Every point counts in this race, especially since we are looking to get a home semi and a final,” said Cardo’. Promoted Mombasa, lying at the bottom of the log, have so far conceded 134 points in just three matches whilst scoring 15 points in their loss streak leaving Kabras as the favourites in that match.
The sugarmen forwards play consisting of Kenyan and Ugandan internationals will be able to deliver the win should Mombasa lack will to contain them. Kisii RFC, will be playing their second Kenya cup match in history at the Kisii school.
Kisii will host third placed Homeboyz, a side which has registered three bonus point wins in a row while Kisii, just like Mombasa are yet to taste a cup win. Strathmore Leos will host Mwamba RFC at the Strathmore University sports complex. Both Leos and Kulabu are yet to register a first win this season making the match more interesting as rivalry will be unleashed when one side bags a win.
