Christie Sevens defending champions KCB, Strathmore Leos, Homeboyz, Mwamba and Kabras Sugar secured main cup quarterfinal berths after kicking off the second leg of the National Sevens Circuit on a high note by winning two matches in their respective groups.

Fresh from winning the Kabeberi Sevens circuit last Sunday, all eyes were on the bankers who faced Top fry Nakuru, hosts Kenya Harlequin and Pirates in Group A.

The Dennis Mwanja led outfit begun their second circuit title hunt with a 19-5 victory over Kenya Harlequin before thrashing JumiaPay Pirates 33-7 to seal their quarterfinals spot.

KCB finished the day unbeaten with a 21-10 victory over Nakuru in their last pool match.

At the same time, Kabeberi Sevens runners up Strathmore went on a scoring spree with huge wins against Blak Blad (34-0) and Impala (36-0) to reach the quarters as Homeboyz thrashed Catholic Monks 49-10 and saw off Western Bulls 14-12 to progress.

Kenya Cup champions Kabras Sugar meanwhile maintained their dominance in the ‘Rai Derby’ after seeing off Menengai Oilers 36-7.

The sugar men who struggled last week seem to have found their footing by qualifying for the quarters with another close 14-12 revenge win against Masinde Muliro University who defeated them last Saturday.

The Christie Sevens continues on Sunday with quarters, semis and finals lined up.
