Kenya Cup Match Day Seven Preview

By Michael Kwambo

Nobody can dispute the fact that the 2009 Kenya Cup has provided many
a fan with thrilling rugby action,from floodlit matches to unbeaten
runs and jinxes being broken. The next installment to this drama is
match seven on Saturday 25th July,which also marks the league's
halfway point.
KCB, buoyed by their 27-18 home win over Kenya Harlequin have the
chance to set the record straight when they host Nakuru RFC at The
Lions' Den in Ruaraka. Nakuru inflicted a rare home defeat to the
bankers in last year's Kenya Cup before knocking them out of the
Enterprise Cup. Fresh from beating Impala on match day six,the
"Wanyore" will be out to build on this with a win against a resurgent
KCB who lead the league going into this fixture.
Kenya Harlequin and Impala were on the losing end of their match day
six fixtures. There can only be one winner when the two sides face off
this weekend in what promises to be a cracker of a tie.
John Onyango's Mwamba play host to the University of Nairobi's Mean
Machine. Mwamba are steadily rising up the league table courtesy of
some competent displays over the past few weeks. Mean Machine claimed
their first win of the season when they beat Strathmore 30-28 on match
day six and will definitely take the game to "Kulabu" as they seek to
jot down win number two at the Railway Club.
Unlucky Strathmore play the ever improving Nondescripts. Strath were
unlucky 28-30 losers to Mean Machine on match day six. This has been
the story of Strath's 2009 Kenya Cup season. Will lady luck smile
their way when they play a Nondies side that is seemingly getting its
act together.
Kenya Cup Match Day Seven awaits,turn up at the rugby ground and
support your favourite club side.
The second division Eric Shirley Shield continues at various venues
this weekend.
