Kenya rugby heavyweights set for tussle in Nairobi - Sports Leo

KCB and Kabras Sugar, arguably the Kenya Cup’s most consistent and dominant sides over the past five or so seasons, will do battle once more on Saturday in Nairobi.

As was the case last season, it is Kabras who are looking ominous heading into this fixture, hardly putting a foot wrong in dominating their opposition, averaging 51 points a match.

They have seen off all opposition to date in clinical fashion and lead the log with five bonus-point wins from five outings, accumulating 25 points in the process. While they share an identical record with defending champions KCB, it is their massive 112-point difference that sees them placed ahead of KCB on the log.

KCB, in contrast, have appeared to be going about their business in a rather measured way. While they have amassed an equal number of wins and bonus points as Kabras, they have given their fans some hair-raising moments this season.

They cruised into a 29-3 half time lead against Kenya Harlequin, eventually pulling off the 32-20 result only after ‘Quins had reduced the deficit to nine points after rallying to 29-20 at a point of that fixture.

They then found themselves trailing 14-8 during the halftime of their home fixture against Homeboyz. They turned things around in the second half to first lead 27-14 before the deejays scored two late tries, KCB hanging on for the 27-24 result.

Despite the two sides’ contrasting fortunes at the top of the table, it is worth noting that Kabras are yet to beat KCB in ten previous encounters since earning promotion to the top tier in 2014.

They have come agonisingly close, playing out a 15-15 draw at the Kakamega Showground in December 2016.  There were also two Kenya Cup finals in 2018 and 2019 when they lost 29-24 and 23-18 respectively.

A win for Kabras on Saturday will not only see them finally get one over KCB but certainly put them in a good position to again host this season’s title-decider later on in the season.
