Kenya Cup: Kenya Harlequins take on in form Kabras



This week head coach Paul Murunga faces his biggest test yet in charge of the Harlequins as they take on finely tuned Kabras. The last meeting between the two teams in the sevens season ended in a win for the Sugar boys in injury time off an unfortunate error by Cornelius Mokoro in the final third. But the Harlequins have since been much improved having taken only one loss in their last seven games in the Kenya Cup.

Kabras have won all their fixtures in immaculate fashion to retain top spot with the highest points difference in the league. Head Coach Carlos Katywa has however made a couple changes on his side ahead of the big game. Simba’s Captain George Nyambua starts alongside Willy Muhanji and Jeanson Misoga at the back row. Kenya Cup top try scorer Derrick Ashiundu makes a return to bolster the back line.

Quins Coach Paul Murunga was forced to make a couple changes on the team sheet after Meshack Tunnechi suffered a knock in their match against the Menengai Oilers. Charlton Mokua is set to start against his former side, with Mike Onsando, Captain Herman Humwa and his vice Sheldon Kahi retaining their starting positions. Ugandan international Mark Mondo comes in at eighth man.

The Harlequins forwards will have to find their form early in the game if they are to win the match. A slow start in the game against the Oilers put the Quins in precarious position before they managed tighten up their play in the second half. Much like last weekend Cornelius Mokoro will have to be in fine form as he takes on Kenya Sevens hot shot Bryan Tanga as his opposite man.
