Kabras maintained their fine form against the Kenya Harlequins coming back from behind to win the game 22-50 in what was an enthralling match at the RFUEA grounds this past Saturday. The Harlequins took the lead in the first half 22-19 coming off some good link up play in the back line to capitalise on their pace to break down the Kabras defence.
The sugar boys turned on the after burners in the second half holding off the quartered shirts on their 22 yard line on multiple occasions to deny them additional points. The Kabras front row put up a clinic in the second half as hooker Eugene Sifuna scored a brace to surge them into the lead. League top try scorer Derrick Ashiundu extended his points tally to 11, with wingers Lameck Ambetsa and Mathis Osimbo getting a try a peace.
Head Coach Carlos Katywa lauded the Harlequins’ tenacity as the team maintained their perfect start to the season winning all eight games. ” I think any team that comes here (RFUEA) is gonna have to be at their best. They forced us into errors on the restart and their back line also gave us some problems. But I’m proud of the boys today they showed character to get back in to the game,” he said.
Mwamba continued to mount a resurgence as they beat Strathmore Leos 27-7 in their home turf to stay eight points clear of the relegation spot. KCB drowned the Lakeside boys – Kisumu RFC – in their home turf at the Kisumu Polytechnic to win the match 64-10. The Lions will now face the Harlequins at the den in Ruaraka this coming weekend with only a single point separating them and league leaders Kabras.
Oilers bounced back to win 31-18 in their match against Nondies as the Catholic monks cemented their place in the relegation zone following their 28-22 loss to Blaq Blad.
