KCB RFC to play Nondies in Floodlit Rugby Tournament semis

Defending champions KCB RFC have set up a date with Nondescripts in the semifinals of the Floodlit Rugby Tournament that kicked off yesterday evening at the Impala Grounds, Nairobi.

The bankers were flawless in the quarter-final clash against Kenya Harlequin, edging out the Ngong-road side 45-0 in an encounter that was graced by hundreds of rugby fans.

William Opaka, Bob Muhati, and Davies Chenge all scored in the first half to give KCB a commanding 19-0 lead going into the break.

KCB RFC Head Coach Curtis Olago said: “Our aim in this competition is to sharpen our team as we gear up for the 2023/2023 Kenya Cup season that is around the corner.

“We want to test the new players who are coming in and work on areas that need improvement. I am not focusing so much on defending our title, but should we emerge victorious, it will be an amazing feat ahead of the Kenya Cup.”

The rampage continued in the second half as Curtis Olago made a few changes to the squad that wreaked havoc to a hapless Kenya Harlequin side.

KCB RFC will lock horns with Nondies on October 21, 2023, who defeated Catholic University of East Africa (CUEA) 20-18 in a tightly contested duel.

“I am happy with today’s performance as the boys’ valiant display sent a strong message to our opponents that we are coming for them. We are going back to the den to prepare for Nondies, a good side that gave us a lot of problems last year in the finals,” said KCB RFC Captain Griffin Musila.

KCB RFC has won the Floodlit Rugby Tournament a record nine times and a win this year will make them the most successful club in the competition.
