Homeboyz are this year’s Enterprise Cup winners

Homeboyz are this year’s champions of Enterprise Cup.

The Deejays historic win, a 21-3 final score against Impala Saracens to mark their first Enterprise Cup win since their inception back in 2009.

The cup in its 88th edition, had seen the Deejays spoil former immediate champion KCB’s fourth title in a row chase during the cup semis nailing them 12-10 at KCB Sports club to tip the deejays to shine in the cup finals. The win was received by head coach Paul Murunga with both hands, a journey which according to the tactician is a sign that the incoming 2018/19 Kenya Cup could land in their grip.

“The win is special, we took our chances well believing we were the best side and we lived up to our expectations and this is nothing but an indication that the Kenya cup this season is going to be fun,” said Murunga.

For their Enterprise cup win, the Deejays ran in two tries, one conversion and three penalties against Impala’s one penalty.

Polycarp Odhiambo and William Diffu scored the tries with Johnstone Olindi booting in the extras.

For the cup final cut, Homeboyz had downed KCB while Impala eliminated Kabras in Kakamega.

Meanwhile Homeboyz pending Mwamba Cup appeal at the Kenya Rugby Union (KRU) tribunal over their semi-final loss to Strathmore forced the postponement of the final featuring Strathmore and KCB to May 12 to conclude the hearing, which halted the match.

In the KRU Championship finals, Mean Machine beat Menengai Oilers 10-5 in Nakuru to finish first as the two are now officially Kenya Cup sides.
