NAIROBI, Kenya, Sep 11 – Mwamba RFC will be out to topple leaders Homeboyz when the 2018 Kenyan Rugby Union National Sevens Circuit comes to a conclusion this weekend with the Christie Sevens at the RFUEA Ground.

Mwamba head to Christie 7s with 92 points, eight behind leaders Homeboyz and will need to win the Main Cup, collecting 22 points and hope Homeboyz fails to reach the Cup quarters for them to reclaim the national title for the first time since 2011.

The Dejeeys on the other end only needs to get into the Cup semis to win the national title for the first time since 2016.

However, the advantaged Homeboyz could finish the job early if they reach the Challenge Trophy final and hope Mwamba fail to get into the Cup semis.

KCB, who are third on 81 points, also stand a chance mathematically to be crowned champions but only if in the rare occasion, Homeboyz and Mwamba fall to the Shield semi-finals.
