In their third final appearance of the season, KCB aimed to cap off the year by defending their Kabeberi 7s title.

They had previously secured victories in Dala and Christie 7s and had claimed the National 7s Circuit title prior to this match.

Facing them in the final was Nakuru RFC, a team making their first final appearance this season and their first since their victory in Driftwood 7s back in 2018.

KCB needed three minutes to earn the opener. Brian Wahinya launched an attack, Levy Amunga gained several metres before releasing supporting Michael Wamalwa who landed a try.

Wahinya converted for a 7-0 lead. Bob Muhati joined the scoresheet with a try that saw them lead 12-0 despite being a man down following Elphas Adunga’s yellow card.

In the second half, a team effort try saw Austin Sikutwa set up Wamalwa for a try that was converted for a 19-0 lead.

Nakuru RFC would have pulled back but a desperate tackle by Lionel Ajeliti saw Javan Otieno lose the ball on the tryline.

KCB sealed their victory following a try by Trevor Odawa.

Meanwhile, in the bronze match, Menengai Oilers secured a 12-7 win over Nondies, earning them the third-place finish. Strathmore Leos claimed the fifth position after a victory against Kabras RFC.
