Kabras fry Menengai, KCB cruise as Nakuru silence Catholic Monks

Kenya Cup league leaders Kabras RFC outclassed their “siblings” Menengai oilers 47-3 in a Kenya Cup tie played at the Kakamega Showground on Saturday afternoon.

Kabras who have been almost unplayable all season exerted their dominance early on in the match with Ntabeni Dukisa being the first to go over the white wash.

Alfred Orege would soon follow suit as he scored Kabras’ second try of the game with Dukisa getting the extras for a 12-0 lead. Patrick Lumumba soon joined the party to score a try of his own and Dukisa ensured the millers went to half time with a 19-0 lead.

Their dominance continued in the second half as they overpowered their opponents by scoring four more tries through Patrick Lumumba, Teddy Akala, Dan Angwech and Barry Robinson to run out 47-3 winners and earn a bonus point.

Oilers head coach Gibson Weru praised their opponents display, saying his team has learned a lot from the match.

“We came here expecting a tough match, and indeed Kabras were better than us, we have learned our mistakes and we are going to rectify and come back better,” he said.

His counterpart Carlos Katywa was impressed by how his team performed, especially his young players in such a high-stakes fixture.

"It was a very good match especially in the first half, we won because we were very disciplined in our defence, my boys showed good character, especially the youngsters who came in for injured senior players,” he remarked.

Elsewhere, Nakuru RFC put on a spirited performance to see out Catholic Monks 31-10 at the Nakuru Athletic Club.

Nakuru were the quickest off the blocks as Philip Kwame and Hannington Wabwire touched down for the opening two tries for Wanyore as they are fondly known in rugby circles.

Monks scored a drop goal to reduce the deficit and put their first points on the board. They had a try of their own through Philip Walukhana before half time with Samuel Omollo claiming the extras.

Nakuru took the match away from Monks in the second half as Hannington Wabwire, Philip Owuor and Derrick Sore all scored a try each to run out 31-10 winners.

At the KCB Sports Complex here in Nairobi, KCB proved too hot for Kenya Harlequin to handle as they hammered Quins 45-15.
