It will be a Super Saturday of Kenyan club rugby as the The Kenya Cup
finals go down this weekend at Impala grounds with Kabras Sugar taking on Resolution Impala Saracens.
Going into the final, Impala have been the more consistent side among the two and start as favorites. They qualified top of the log and were handed a quarter final bye going straight into the semi-finals. Kabras on the other hand endured a hard fought victory over Menengai Nakuru RFC in the quarter finals to advance. Impala will be fresh after their bye but this should still be a highly competitive game and could swing either way. Head to head, Kabras have one over Impala. The two sides have met thrice in Kenya Cup over the last two years, with Kabras winning twice. In recent fixtures, Kabras had a 25 – 13 win in Kakamega, while Impala won the first leg 31 - 14 in Nairobi.
The sugar boys are buoyed by the availability of the likes of Levi Ochieng, Fabian Olando, Nick Barasa and Brian Tanga. The foursome will bring some much needed strength and grit to the lineup. Sarries have Samuel Motari available and also boast a wealth of experienced players in their ranks. Nato Simiyu, Captain Duncan Ekasi, Ian Minjiire, Samson Onsomu and wonderkid Paul Mutsami will be key if the Ngong Road side is to win their first Kenya Cup in seven years.
In other fixtures, the Bronze Cup will see a face-off between semifinal losers Kenya Harlequins and KCB Rugby on the same day. Impala II will face Kabras II at the Eric Shirley Cup Finals in what will be a mega Saturday. A feast of rugby action awaits
