Homeboyz Rugby’s 13-year journey in Kenya Cup came to an end after they gave Mwamba RFC a walkover in their match day 10, the result meant that the deejayz would be deducted 2 points.

This leaves them with zero points with 1 game to go and they are set to dish a walkover in the final match of the season against Blak Blad.

The Deejayz only managed a draw in this campaign with their last win coming on 14 January 2023 when they beat Mean Machine 31-7 in the 2022/23.

They are on a 16-match winless streak since mid-January 2023.


Homeboyz RFC got promoted to the Kenya Cup in 2011 after winning the Eric Shirley Shield back-to-back under the leadership of Paul Murunga who served as player and coach.

The club was formed in 2009 to give young players a chance to showcase their potential. They would then go ahead and have a good run in the 2010s.

Homeboyz RFC form was picked in the 2016/2017 season where they finished on top of Kenya Cup standings. They would then get a direct home semifinal but Kabras RFC eliminated them in the semis in what was an entertaining match in a wet Jamhuri Grounds with the match ending 22-17 in sudden death.

In 2017/18, they reached the Kenya Cup semifinal but again Kabras eliminated them in the semis 29-13.

In 2015, they reached the Enterprise Cup finals but were denied by KCB Rugby but they couldn’t be denied three years later in 2018 when they lifted the Enterprise Cup after seeing off Impala RFC 21-3 at RFUEA.

Homeboyz Rugby will have to fight for promotion when they start a new life in KRU Champiomship as from 2024/2025 season.
