Defending champions and top seeds Top Fry Nakuru RFC won their first two matches to qualify for the quarter finals of the Prinsloo Sevens that kicked off the National Sevens Circuit series at Nakuru Athletic Club.
Nakuru RFC opened their title defence yesterday in a grand style by first hitting Nondescripts 19-0 and thereafter smashed less enterprising Kisumu’s RFC 38-12 to top Pool A with a match in hand against Kabras Sugar.
Against Kisumu RFC, Nakuru scored their tries through Godfrey Mbeya, Cyprian Imbuga, Edwin Makori, Nelson Oyoo and Leslie Ochieng with Donald Oluoch (one) and Geoffrey Ominde (two) making the three conversions.
Kisumu replied with two tries by Bruno Otieno and a conversion by Brian Watson.
“We are determined to retain the overall title and it is the reason behind our aggressiveness to win the Prinsloo Sevens title ahead of the other five series of the tournament,” said Nakuru RFC Coach Enos Otieno.
On their part, Kabras hammered Kisumu 38-0 before thumping Nondescripts 21-12.
In the Pool B, Mwamba dismissed Western Bulls 36-10 before Homeboyz ran over Menengai Oilers 19-12.
Mwamba and Menengai Oilers later settled for a 7-7 draw to make the scramble for quarterfinal berths open to all teams.
The match between Mwamba and Homeboyz was to decide, which two teams proceed to the Main Cup quarterfinals.
In Pool C, Kenya Harlequins were made to struggle before overcoming stubborn Kenyatta University’s Blak Blad 12-7.
Former champions Kenya Commercial Bank dismissed Daystar University Falcons 24-0.
Strathmore Leo’s also made a positive start in the Pool D with a 20-0 win over Catholic Monks as Impala overcame Kisii RFC 39-7.
