Lucky Eldoret RFC host Bungoma Sharks at the Eldoret Sports Club on Saturday in this Nationwide National semifinal, a Kenya Cup slot the reward for the victorious side.

Relegated from the Kenya Cup last season, Eldoret finished third in the Rift Valley regional league and only got to play in the National quarters following University of Eldoret’s withdrawal due to logistical challenges. They would then recover from a 0-12 deficit to beat Impala III 20-17 last weekend in Nairobi and will surely call upon lady luck to prevail.

It is only their first year of existence but the Bungoma Sharks have by all means outdone themselves, qualifying for the national playoffs by finishing second in a very competitive Western region before travelling 914km to play South Coast Pirates last weekend, a match that they won 5-0 to set up this tie.
