KCB are the defending Champions having beaten Nakuru RFC 12-7 in the 2019 final. After recovering from behind to draw the game 7-7 at full time, KCB needed an Elphas Adunga sudden death try to win the title.
Wanyore had taken the lead through Monate Akuei with Geoffrey Ominde converting for a 7-0 lead. Geoffrey Okwach’s try converted by Levi Amunga saw the bankers level the scores and it proceeded to sudden death where the bankers emerged top.
The Christie Sevens, which began in 1962 and was incorporated into the Kenyan National Sevens Circuit in 1999, is Kenya’s oldest club sevens tournament.
It is named after Alex ‘Sandy’ Milne Christie, a Kenya Harlequins President, experienced rugby player, and referee for Dar-es-Salaam, Tanzania, Kampala, Uganda, and Mombasa, Kenya, who also served as President of the RFUEA and Vice-President of Wasps RFC in England.
