Blak Blad on the other qualified for the quarters after topping Pool C while Menengai Oilers topped their Pool following two wins and one draw.

Kabras RFC run Christie 7s

The Sugarmen had received Jone Kubu’s boost after he returned from suspension having accumulated two yellow cards last weekend. Kubu scored the opener at the left corner for a 5-0 lead.

He was however sent to the bin following a yellow card and Kabras had to finish the half with one man less. Despite the disadvantage, they denied Nakuru a chance on the scoresheet.

In the second half, Javan Otieno managed to break Kabras defence for a try that leveled the scores. Gilbert Ochieng then raced on for the second try that saw Kabras trail.

Kabras fought back to level matters through William Muhanji and would win the match following a beautiful cross kick by Barry Robinson to find unmarked Alfred Orege for a try that Kubu failed to converted.

The win sees Kabras finish top with nine points this being the third time this season that they have topped the pool. They are now on a 15-match winning streak this season.

MMUST finished third in their pool after staging a back comeback to beat Impala RFC 24-14.

Quins sneak through

Kenya Harlequin had a tough task against Homeboyz but fought on to win 19-14.

The Deejays led first through Brian Mutua for a 7-0 after a blistering run. Tony Khadambi hustled his way through the Homeboyz to score at the centre for a 7-7.

Mutua restored Homeboyz lead with another try that was converted for a 14-7 lead. Quins had to dig deep for a try from Lucky Dewald and sneaked into the quarters following a left corner try by Arnold Onzere.

With the win and seven points, Quins join Blak Blad who topped pool B with seven points. Daystar Falcons also finished day one with seven points but their hopes of playing in the quarters were dealt a blow after a 24-7 loss to Blak Blad.

In Pool C, KCB finished top with maximum points after extending their fine run against Strathmore Leos with a convincing 40-0. Strathmore qualify as runners-up.

The Bankers led through Austin SIkutwa before captain Vincent Onyala scored at the corner for a 12-0. Just before the break, Sikutwa burst through Leo’s defence for a centre post try.

In the second half, Samuel Asati, Onyala and Elphas Adunga landed more tries for the huge win.

Mwamba and Menengai Oilers proceeded to the last eight in Pool D. Oilers staged a comeback to bring the scores to 12-10 before the hooter.

Oilers retained possession from kickoff and won two penalties and scored at the right corner before converting for an 18-12.

Nondies whipped Sigalagala 41-7 in their final match in pool D to move to six points and finished third
