KCB RFC Off to a Flying Start at the Dala Sevens

KCB RFC recorded three straight wins to secure a quarter-finals slot in the opening leg of the National Sevens Circuit at the Jomo Kenyatta International Stadium, Kisumu County.

The bankers thrashed Mombasa RFC 36-0 in the morning fixture before defeating varsity side Masinde Muliro (MMUST) 22-7 in a tightly contested afternoon encounter. Scrum-half Samuel Asati produced a moment of individual brilliance to hand KCB a 12-7 win over Kenya Harlequin in the team’s last match of the day that sent KCB to the top of pool B with 9 points.

“We did not come here to second guess ourselves; we knew that we wanted to win all our games considering the performance we had last year at the same venue. The boys were dedicated throughout the day’s matches, and we are now looking forward to the quarterfinals tomorrow and hopefully going all the way to clinch the trophy,” said Andrew Amonde, KCB Coach.

New signing Edmund Anya registered a Hatrick of tries in his debut match for his new team. Vincent Onyala on the other hand also scored a try for the team after missing action for the past 6 months due to a knee injury.

“I am happy for the win, and I feel fresh again. The boys are in high spirits, and everyone is pushing himself beyond the limits to represent the badge the right way. I am also delighted for my first try after missing the sport I resonate with for the past 6 months. It has not been easy but today is a good day because
we can pick on the momentum going into the knockout stages,”
noted an ecstatic Onyala.

The team will find out from the Kenya Rugby Union whom they will face in the quarterfinals that kick off tomorrow at the same venue from 9:00 am.
