Kenya Rugby Union Women’s Festival moves to Ruaraka - Sports Leo

The Kenya Rugby Union (KRU) Women’s Festival set for this weekend in Ruaraka will be split into two divisions.

The league previously featured nine teams; Stanbic Mwamba, Homeboyz, Top Fry Nakuru, Northern Suburbs, Yamanashi Impala, Blad Babes, Shamas, Kisumu Dolphins, and Twigas and with the inclusion of the Egerton Hornets, it brings the total to 10 teams.

Tier one will feature Stanbic Mwamba, Homeboyz, Top Fry Nakuru, Northern Suburbs and Yamanashi Impala, while the other features Blad Babes, Shamas, Kisumu Dolphins, Twigas, and the Egerton Hornets.

The festivals will be played in a round-robin format in both tiers after which teams will be ranked based on their results to confirm the semifinal pairings.

“Not all teams are equal in terms of competition and this was very evident during the first festival,” said George Ndemi, Kenya Rugby’s Training, and Education Coordinator.

“Having two tiers in regards to the level of competition will help each team play it’s best as well as develop further. The main aim of the tournament is to assess the growth of teams and individual players. By placing each team where they deserve to be will improve their performance step by step.”

The first leg was played at the Kenyatta University on February 9, with Stanbic Mwamba emerging victorious after beating Northern Suburbs 19-0 in the final.

The second-leg, which will be played under the new format, takes place on Sunday at the KCB Sports Club in Ruaraka.
