High flying SportPesa Quins welcome struggling Western Bulls to the RFUEA Ground for Kenya Cup match day 11 action on Saturday 4 February 2017.
Quins are enjoying a stellar season thus far, joint top of the log with KCB. They have clearly bounced back from the 10-15 loss to Menengai Cream Homeboyz on Saturday 14 January to register back to back bonus point wins against Nondescripts (38-22) and Resolution Impala Saracens (36-26).
Joel Ng’ang’a has at his disposal a talented and motivated unit that includes new signing Ginton Adongo who has blended into the Quins system quickly as well as forwards Roxy Suchi and Edward Shitanda to name but a few. They will be keen to maintain their fine run of form by posting a routine win over Bulls, a side that they put to the sword in their last Kenya Cup meeting courtesy of a 57-16 win at the RFUEA on Saturday 19 March 2016
Western Bulls on the other hand lie second from bottom and must keep winning if they harbor any chances of competing in next season’s top tier. Echulusi have registered only two wins this campaign, both of them against Mean Machine. Howard Okwemba’s young side largely inspired by Evin Asena as well as the experience of Reinhardt Ashioya has been competitive in some of their fixtures, but have also capitulated a tad too easily in others. They must show up and take the game to Quins on Saturday if they are to curb their prolonged stay in the league’s lower reaches.
