Kenya Cup: Top four teams vie for dominance


As the Kenya Cup gears up for its third match day this Saturday, all eyes are on the defending champions, Kabras Sugar, who are set to host Catholic Monks in Kakamega.

The high-stakes league, which is the pinnacle of Kenyan rugby, has already witnessed an intense battle among the top contenders, with the standings showing a clear divide between the leaders and those struggling at the bottom.

Kabras Sugar, sitting at the top with a staggering +102 points difference, remains unbeaten and is expected to maintain their form against the Catholic Monks, who are languishing at the bottom with a -100 points difference. The Monks face the daunting task of challenging the champions in their own backyard, a feat that would require a monumental effort and perhaps a bit of luck.

KCB Rugby, tied with Kabras Sugar at 10 points but with a slightly lesser points difference, will take on Homeboyz in a match that could see them either cement their place at the top or slip depending on the outcome. The Homeboyz, with no wins so far, are desperate to make a statement and climb out of the relegation zone.

Another key fixture to watch out for is between Menengai Oilers and Strathmore Leos. Both teams have had a strong start to the season, but the Oilers’ superior points difference gives them the psychological edge going into the match.

Kenya Harlequin and Mwamba will clash in what is expected to be a tightly contested match. Kenya Harlequin, with a +89 points difference, are among the favorites and will be looking to keep the pressure on the league leaders.

Blak Blad will face Nakuru in a mid-table tussle. Blak Blad, with one win and one loss, will be keen to improve their standings, while Nakuru will attempt to build on their positive points difference to edge closer to the playoff zone.

The Nondescripts versus Kisumu game is equally crucial for both teams. Kisumu, just above the relegation zone, will fight to secure vital points and create a buffer, whereas the Nondescripts will be seeking their first win of the season.

With the league heating up, the third match day of the Kenya Cup is poised to deliver thrilling rugby action, showcasing the best of Kenyan talent and competitive spirit. Fans are undoubtedly in for a treat as teams battle it out for supremacy, points, and the pride of their clubs.
