Away from the razzmatazz around the Ngong Road derby, there are another five significant fixtures on the cards when Kenya Cup match day six comes visiting on Saturday 20 January 2018.
Leaders and defending champions KCB make the short trip to the Nairobi Railway Club for a date with hosts Stanbic Mwamba who lie ninth on the log. KCB, fresh from winning last weekend’s top of the table clash against Menengai Cream Homeboyz are unbeaten all season and will be out to make it six wins from six against a Mwamba side that posted their first win of the season in emphatic fashion with a 74-3 crushing of Regional Logistics CFS Mombasa at the same venue. KCB and Mwamba have always served up feisty encounters and Saturday should be no exception, fans can certainly bank on rugby of high octane proportions from both sides. Who will be left smiling all the way to the bank at the end of this encounter?
Seventh placed Top Fry Nakuru are up against fourth placed Menengai Cream Homeboyz at the Nakuru Athletic Club. The last time these sides met was on Saturday 18 March 2017, Homeboyz inflicting a 44-17 mauling to the Wanyore at their revered home ground. The Wanyore started the calendar year with a 26-6 win over Blak Blad last weekend while the deejays will be out to bounce back from the defeat to KCB.
Other matches see sixth placed Nondescripts welcome second placed Kabras Sugar to the Jamhuri Park, Blak Blad hosting Resolution Kisii as Regional Logistics CFS Mombasa welcome the Strathmore Leos to the Mombasa Sports Club.
