Kenya’s premier rugby league just entered into the Semi Final stage, with two teams securing their right to host the Semi Final, Kenya Harlequins had to travel to KCB’s Ruaraka Sports Club to face KCB Rugby, and Kabras RFC had to travel all the way from Western to play the Menengai Cream Homeboys.
Many a fan largely thought the home advantage was enough for the hosts to secure their path to the final, but the weather had other ideas.
Despite the torrential downpour, the game ensued and it proved to be a bruising battle indeed as both teams put in their every effort to secure a win.
Despite Kenya Harlequins efforts, they were denied time and time again by a resolute KCB defence. Their inability to cross over the white chalk was their downside. After 80 minutes of play the referee blew the whistle signalling the end of the match, Full Time Score KCB 19 – 12 Sportpesa Harlequins.
