Enterprise Cup returns as eyes fall on KCB and defending champions Kabras Sugar

After missing out on the Kenya Cup title for a third season running, KCB will resume their pursuit for the only trophy they can win this season, the Enterprise Cup, when they host Kenya Harlequin at the KCB Sports Club in the semifinals today.

The Bankers hammered Catholic University of East Africa (CUEA) 70-3 in the pre-quarterfinals and saw off Northern Suburbs 65-7 in the quarters before the competition took a brief break to pave the way for the Rugby Super Series that came to an end last week at the RFUEA Grounds.

“KCB is eager to participate in the semis of this historic competition that has strengthened the country's rugby game.

“Some of our boys took part in the Rugby Super Series, while others have been intensifying their training to be ready for this event. We are urging our fans to rally behind the team on Saturday,” KCB Head Coach Curtis Olago said.

The bankers who have won the cup five times (2004, 2007, 2015, 2016, and 2017) will be banking on centre player Bob Muhati, Levy Amunga, Brian Wahinya, youngsters Emmanuel Opondo, and Michael Wamalwa to propel the team to the finals and possibly the title.

Olago, who lost the Kenya Cup title 5-29 to Kabras hopes the team can clinch this title to reward the fans who have been pushing the team all through.
