Over in Kakamega, the Ingo Derby returns for the first time since the 2016/17 season when current leaders Kabras Sugar take on town rivals Western Bulls at the Moi Showground.

Both sides warmed up for this encounter in style, Kabras ending an 11-match winless streak against KCB with an authoritative 19-6 defeat of the current champions, while eighth-placed Bulls ensured that they remained unbeaten in the Kenya Cup, posting a 23-5 result in what was only the second-ever top tier clash between the two sides.

In other fixtures, defending champions KCB will look to bounce back from last weekend’s 19-6 defeat to Kabras Sugar when they face fifth-placed Stanbic Mwamba at the Nairobi Railway Club.

Elsewhere, third-placed Homeboyz are on the road, playing against the bottom of the table Kisumu at the Kisumu Polytechnic.
