Kabeberi 7s holders KCB Rugby and Nondies managed a 100% win record on day one of the competition played at RFUEA Grounds.

Kabras and Nakuru RFC also emerged top in their respective pools after staying unbeatean and will head to the quarters as pool winners.

Kabras stand tall against Mwamba

Kabras RFC strong defence ensured that they beat Mwamba 21-10 and topped pool C, keeping the title hopes alive.

Kabras RFC took the lead minutes after Mwamba lost Brian Mutugi to injury and Moses Keragori to a yellow card. Derrick Ashihundu burst on the right side and scored a centre post try that was converted for a 7-0 lead.

The lead was shortlived as Kabras Patrick Lumumba was yellow carded and Mwamba used the advantage to score at the left corner and Daniel Taabu couldn’t convert.

Kabras kicked into Mwamba’s zone and won a five-metre scrum and off the scrum, Dan Angwech fed Mathias Osimbo. Osimbo released the ball to Byrceson Agesa and the Kenyan International danced through to score. His try was converted for a 14-5.

Kabras conceded a late yellow card but held on. They conceded in the second with Eliakim Kichoi turning his markers inside out to score a try that Taabu failed to convert.

Kabras were forced defend for their lives as a defeat would have seen them out of overall title contention.

Poor decisions off the penalties by Mwamba saw Kabras hang on before Humphrey Asirikwa intercepted and raced clear to score a try that sent Kabras into the quarters as Pool C winners

MMUST whipped Daystar Falcons 31-0 and had a chance to qualify for quarters but that Kabras win knocked them out as they finished with six points.

KCB topped pool D after a 17-7 win over Oilers.

KCB started off strong and raced on two successive tries through Eugene Omondi and Michael Wamalwa for a 10-0 lead. Davis Nyaundi pulled back for the Oilers just before the break for a 10-7.

In the second half, Oilers came stronger but their try was ruled out. KCB regained possession late on and Trevor Adawa landed a try that saw them stretch the lead and win.

Quins back in quarters

Kenya Harlequin joined the quarters after a 28-12 over Tessen Warriors. Four converted tries were enough for Paul Murunga’s side to knock out the Warriors from cup contention.

Quins are now on second with seven points in the pool after two wins while Tisap Seven Champions Nondies proceeded to the quarters as pool winners with nine points. Nondies have maintained their fine run and have now won nine matches in a row following 22-10 over Blak Blad.

In Pool B, Nakuru RFC topped following an impressive 40-5 win over Impala Saracens. Wanyore started their campaign with a 5-5 draw to Strathmore Leos, benefited from a walkover against Kisumu RFC and defeated Impala to move to eight points with a superior point differential of 63.

Strathmore Leos were second in the pool and had eight points but with a point differential of 56. Impala finished bottom in the pool.
