The Super Series Rugby finals are scheduled to take place on May 25th, 2024, at RFUEA Grounds on Ngong Road, Nairobi.

The Rhinos will play against the Buffaloes at 2 PM, while the Cheetahs will face the Lions at 4 PM.

The Rhinos and Buffaloes have secured their spots in the playoffs as the third and fourth-ranked teams, while the Cheetahs and Lions have emerged as the top two ranked teams.

The Lions secured their spot in the final with a hard-fought victory over the Buffaloes, thanks in large part to Levy Amunga’s impressive performance.

In a thrilling encounter, Levy Amunga showcased his kicking prowess by booting 15 crucial points, guiding the Lions to a hard-fought 20-5 victory over the Buffaloes.

Both teams, the Lions and Buffaloes, had their eyes set on the finals, having secured victories over the Rhinos in their previous matches. The Buffaloes, buoyed by their recent triumph against the Rhinos, were eager to secure their spot in front of their home crowd.

The Lions started strong, with Derrick Wechulo crossing the try line early on to give them a 5-0 lead. Levy Amunga extended their lead with a penalty goal, making it 8-0. Despite the Buffaloes’ efforts with Hillary Salano’s try, narrowing the score to 11-5, Amunga’s accurate kicking kept the Lions in control.


As the game progressed, Amunga’s precise penalties extended the Lions’ lead to 20-5, putting the Buffaloes under immense pressure.

However, with the intensification of rain and the looming risk of lightning, the match was called off during the final quarter, with the Lions leading.

With the win, the Lions aim to redeem themselves after a recent defeat to the Cheetahs.

The Rhinos secured their first victory of the series, edging past a resilient Cheetahs side 27-23 in Kakamega.

The Rhinos, determined to bounce back from two previous losses, started strongly, capitalizing on the Cheetahs’ errors. Ryan Odua and Victor Odhiambo scored early tries for the Rhinos, but the Cheetahs fought back, leveling the scores at 10-10 before halftime.

In the second half, the Cheetahs’ resurgence saw them take a 23-20 lead, but a late try from Paul Mutsami secured the Rhinos’ victory, marking their first win of the Rugby Super Series.

Meanwhile, the women’s game which was to take place this weekend has been canceled by the organizers.
