Kenya

Will it be Impala, Quins or KCB?

NAIROBI, Kenya, September 24 – The biggest clash in Kenyan rugby could decide the destiny of the 2009 Kenya Cup title when the league comes to a close on Saturday. RUGBYImpala who are on top of the standings with 46 points need to do the double over their arch rivals and defending champions Kenya Harlequins if they are to regain the prize they last won in 2004.

Quins who are currently third with 41 points need a bonus point victory to ensure that the cup remains in their gleaming new club house and to add credence to their status as the country’s top club.

Quins and Impala also need a huge favour from Nakuru RFC who welcome another title contender and Kenya Commercial Bank (KCB) to Nakuru Athletic Club.

What Jotham Owili’s team need to do is to deny the bankers a bonus point win if the title is to be between the Ngong Road titans.

Quins should have no problem crossing the Impala whitewash four times if they are to secure that vital bonus point and also hope that their adversaries do not register a point.

With destructive outside back Peter Abuoga back to full fitness, Impala’s defence line will be in for a torrid afternoon.

Throw in Sidney Ashioya and Teddy Omondi into the mix plus the game breaking ability of Patrice Agunda and you have a team with threats all over the pitch.

Their red shirt neighbours are no pushovers and will certainly not roll over come Saturday afternoon with the title in touching distance.

Impala have been here before and in Bill Githinji, they have a coach who made them a dynasty in the early part of this decade.

Stalwarts Frank Ndong, Paul Oimbo, Mwirigi Kinagwi and Moses Kola have all shown this season that they can still rule the roost in this league and their experience should come to the for at the Rugby Football Union of East Africa (RFUEA) grounds.

In other matches, Nondies take on bottom side Strathmore University  while Mean Machine play Mwamba.
