KCB RFC recorded its fourth consecutive win of the season after defeating Mwamba RFC 36-5 in a Kenya Cup fixture at the RFUEA Grounds this evening.

Wilhite Mususi opened the scoring for the Curtis Olago-led side before Captain Griffin Musila added the second try of the game in the early stages. Michael Kimwele added the third just before the interval to give KCB a commanding 17-0 lead at the break.

Speaking after the win, KCB RFC Head Coach Curtis Olago said: “We had a tough match against Mwamba but we managed to secure the victory despite the many errors we committed. We are now focusing on the upcoming fixture against Strathmore Leos. We will use today’s match as a benchmark for what we should and shouldn’t do in the upcoming encounter against an equally top opponent.”

Second half substitute Kolian Persian scored his second try for the afternoon ensuring KCB sealed its win against a struggling Kulabu side. Olago took off Oscar Simiyu, Griffin Musila, Wilhite Mususi, Davies Chenge, Emmanuel Opondo, Peter Waitere, Brian Wahinya and Michael Kimwele.

“Owing to the depth of our squad, it was strategic for us to take off some key first team players to give an opportunity to other players who have proven that I can rely on them to give us the results we need as a team. Our objectives for the season are still intact going into matchday five,” added Olago.

The bankers will face varsity lads Strathmore Leos at the Den on January 20, 2024, in another entertaining fixture.
