Kabras RFC have booked a place in the Prinsloo 7s final after beating KCB Rugby 15-0 in the semis played at Nakuru Athletic Club on Sunday.

To reach the finals Kabras scored three unconverted tries while their final opponents Kenya Harlequin needed two tries to beat outgoing Prinsloo 7s Champions Menengai Oilers 14-10.

Kabras overpower KCB in Prinsloo 7s

The Sugarmen had a penalty in their own 22 and a quick tap followed before Jone Kubu beat the defence line and raced clear to score the opening try.

The better part of the half was played in KCB’s zone and after falling short on several occasions, Kabras breakthrough came just before the half-time break when they landed an unconverted try.

In the second half, Kabras continued to dominate and off a Lamec Ambetsa’s ruck, Brian Tanga spotted a gap on the outside and scored the third try for Kabras RFC.

It is Kabras’s third consecutive 7s final this season and fourth in a row since winning the Kakamega 7s.

In the second semi-final, Kenya Harlequin led through Zeden Marrow and his try was converted by Amon Wamalwa.

Dennis Abukuse scored the Menengai Oilers opener for a two-point gap but Quins widened the gap with a converted try for a 14-5.

In the second half, Oilers added a five-pointer but it was not enough.

The Strathmore Leos have a date against Mwamba RFC in the fifth-place playoffs. Leos beat hosts Nakuru RFC 28-12 in the fifth-place semi-finals while their opponents Mwamba beat Homeboyz 17-12.
