The verdict on the opening half of the 2009 Kenya Cup,exciting and
competitive. Pre season predictions have been somewhat rubbished,at
least for now...
Nakuru RFC lead a pack of five teams all in contention for the league
title at this point in time. Their 30-13 away win over KCB saw them
ascend to the top of the Kenya Cup hierachy heading into match day
eight, which incidentally kicks off the league's final leg. Nakuru
will be away to a Mwamba side that is out to avenge their fist leg
loss to the 'Wanyore'.
KCB, who lost their second home match on match day seven will be out
to bounce back and claim the double at the University of Nairobi when
they play hosts Mean Machine whom they beat on match day one. The
varsity side asked many questions of Mwamba in their 24-42 loss on
match seven and will be out for a win against the bankers.
Kenya Harlequin FC were ran close by Nondescripts RUFC on match day
one. Coming off back to back defeats at the hands of KCB and Impala,
the reigning league champions will be out to secure maximum points
against a well drilled Nondies side.
Impala RFC play Strathmore. The first leg ended in an Impala victory.
Could Strathmore,coached by former Impala star Mitch Ocholla pull off
that upset victory on match day eight? Lets wait and see.
Meanwhile,the second division Eric Shirley Shield matches continue
this weekend with the top four teams from the two pools that make up
the ESS battling it out in the first leg of the quarter finals. The
bottom four teams in each pool will fight it out for the ESS Bowl,
whose quarter finals will run concurrently with the main quarters.
An interesting match up in the ESS main quarters is in the offing when
West Kenya,who have conquered all opposition before them, travel to
Nairobi to play KCB II in should be an entertaining first leg match.
Enjoy the matches while filling up the stands to support your favourite teams.
