Homeboyz reached their maiden Cup final in 2022 beating Mwamba Rugby Club 14-10 to book a place in the Dala 7s finals scheduled for Sunday evening at  Jomo Kenyatta Stadium in Mamboleo.

The Deejayz featuring in the first final since the 2019 Prinsloo 7s will face Menengai Oilers who have qualified for the second consecutive final this season. Oilers will be keen to break their losing streak in the finals this weekend.

In the Homeboyz match, Mwamba led through Ronnie Omondi’s unconverted try but Mike Nyakundi responded for Oscar Ayodi-coached side scoring under the sticks for an easy conversion by Amon Wamalwa for a 7-5 lead at halftime.

In the final half, Tom Maina beat Mwamba defenders to score the second try which Wamalwa converted for a 14-5. Ronnie Omondi put Mike Okello through for a try at the corner and Elvis Namusasi couldn’t add the extras. The Deejayz held on to reach the first final this season.

For the second time in a row, Menengai Oilers eliminated KCB Rugby from the Cup competition. With this being the fourth meeting in the semis this season, KCB were keen to revenge on the defeat they suffered in Mombasa two weeks ago.

They however found themselves behind as Oilers scored a converted try by Mark Kwemoi.  Oilers lost Timothy Okwemba to a yellow card and Isaac Njoroge cut the gap with an unconverted try for KCB

Bob Muhati gave the bankers the second try which  Njoroge converted for a 12-7 lead at the break.

Oilers came back from the break looking determined with Dan Abukuse scoring a centre post try which was converted for a 14-12. Oilers would stand tall to reach the second consecutive final.
