The Kenya Cup Dream XV

Who do you pick?

The curtains have fallen, the dusts settled, mud and water puddles dried up, on what was the most exciting Kenya cup season we have seen in recent times. It is time to pick the dream team. Over 22 weeks, we have witnessed the best of 15’s rugby the country has to offer. During that period… Continue reading The Kenya Cup Dream XV

All Hail Kabras, The Kings Of This Jungle!

All Hail the Kings of this Jungle!

All hail Kabras, them of house Opulence, the newest holders of the ‘Iron throne’ in this Kingdom that is the Kenya Cup. Kabras made their ascend to the throne after drowning House Impala 22-5 in a one sided final battle, at a rain drenched Impala Club. Impala had been odd on favourites to claim their… Continue reading All Hail Kabras, The Kings Of This Jungle!

Will It Be Second Time Lucky For Kabras?

In their very first season of asking, Kabras Sugar defied all the odds to reach the Kenya cup final, that one ending in a 27-3 defeat at the hands of KCB. That was last season. Since then the sugar millers have invested heavily in their playing unit, bringing in a handful of new faces from… Continue reading Will It Be Second Time Lucky For Kabras?

Then, There Were Four

The 4 (Photos Mor, Mid-Ego)

The journey to the Kenya cup title that started with 14, then went down to 6, is now down to four sides. Quins, Impala, Kabras and KCB. This weekend the penultimate round of the journey plays out along Ngong road. After sitting out last weekend, the Ngong road duo of Quins and Impala will be… Continue reading Then, There Were Four

It was a weekend made for the ‘Ks’ as the undertaker had rightfully predicted, as Kabras and KCB booked their semi final slots in rather contrasting form. While Kabras were made to sweat it out in the last few minutes on their way to a 16-15 result in Kakamega, KCB had no such problems at… Continue reading Kabras and KCB March On To Semis

Kabras Sugar RFC

Kabras RFC left it late to stun a spirited Nakuru RFC side 33-26 in an exciting encounter for the Rai cup, under the scorching sun at the dusty NAC grounds, on Kenya cup match Day 10. Despite missing some of their more notable players it was the hosts that started this encounter on the front… Continue reading Kabras Stun Nakuru In Rai Cup Thriller

New Look Kenya Cup Enters Match Day 2

I will start by admitting that I am not the biggest fan of the new look Kenya cup. The new system that sees the 14 teams split into two pools of 7, playing home and away fixtures within the pools and one fixture against the other pool, is confused to say the least. But being… Continue reading New Look Kenya Cup Enters Match Day 2

Lima Tunisia

This Sunday at the RFUEA grounds, the Simbas will have one task at hand, to beat Tunisia, to Lima Tunisia. It will be a must win encounter for the side, if we are to maintain our hopes for the African title (given that results elsewhere go our way) and more importantly, maintain division 1A status.… Continue reading Lima Tunisia

Simbas Take On The Os Lobos

Brian Nyikuli in action against WP

The last time we‬ hosted European opposition in a test match, Moi had a full head of hair and probably full set of teeth too. Uhuru was barely a year old (Both the person and the state of the nation). We had the senior Kenyatta and Odinga running things, by this time they were best… Continue reading Simbas Take On The Os Lobos
