Nakuru RFC not giving up Sevens race
Nakuru RFC coach Mitchell Ocholla insists they will hunt down the National Sevens circuit to the last drop of sweat.
With two rounds to go, the Dala and Christie Sevens, Ocholla who led Nakuru RFC to bag the Driftwood Sevens at the weekend said the victory in Mombasa has reinvigorated his side.
“It has been a tight competition and we are not giving up to the end,” said Ocholla Nakuru RFC beat Mwamba 12-7 at Mombasa Sports Club.
With the game deadlocked at 7-7 in normal time, Nelson Oyoo scored a sudden death try to steer Nakuru RFC to honours at the coastal town.
“We are happy to win the Driftwood crown. Kudos to all the teams who made it a tight contest and we look to build from here,” said Ocholla.
There are two more circuits Dala and Christie before the circuit wraps up in readiness for the Safari Sevens, which returns to its traditional RFUEA Grounds. Last year’s event couldn’t take off due to the general election. This year’s event runs from November 10-12 in Nairobi.
Nakuru’s win was a sweet one after they lost in the final of Kabeberi sevens in Machakos a fortnight ago to eventual winners Homeboyz.
To reach the Main Cup final, Nakuru beat KCB 12-10 while Mwamba defeated last year’s champions and series leaders Homeboyz 34-21.
