KCB Rugby continued their unbeaten run this season, defeating resilient Blak Blad 24-3 at KCB Sports Club to extend their lead on the log.

The bankers, perched top of the Kenya Cup standings, headed to this match seeking to cement their position as well their dominance against their Thika Road rivals.

The students, on their part, had registered mixed results in their opening three matches and were hoping to cause an upset at the Den.

It was the hosts who had a bright start in the match and grabbed two successive tries in the opening half. Former  Kenya Under 20 star Wilfred Waswa scored the opening try of the match and Darwin Mukidza converted for a 7-0 lead.

Veteran forward Andrew Amonde then bulldozed his way over grabbing the second try for 12-0 lead after a missed conversion from Darwin Mukidza.  The bankers took a 12-0 lead to the break.

In the closing half, Mukidza grabbed a try for his side before he converted to stretch the lead to 19-0.

Kenya 7s playmaker Johnstone Olindi came off the bench and landed the four try for the Green shirts for 24-0 lead.
