Kabras RFC, Nakuru RFC, Menengai Cream, and Zuri made a strong start in the Great Rift 10s tournament, keeping their semi-final hopes alive with impressive two victories at Nakuru Athletic Club.

In their opening match in pool C, Kabras RFC narrowly edged past Strathmore Leos with a hard-fought 7-5 win. Despite Strathmore Leos taking an early lead with the first try of the match, Kabras staged a comeback when Rayvone Ambale, coming off the bench, made a decisive break through the defence to score, securing the victory for his team.

Additional tries from Dan Angwech and Hillary Salano sealed the comprehensive victory.
