Match Day 2 Talking Points

Saturday’s double header at the RFUEA Ground served up its fair share of drama starting with the opening fixture between Blak Blad and Menengai Oilers.

The visitors from Nakuru raced into a 12 – 0 lead but the students from Kenyatta University dug deep, levelling the scores. The 12-12 result was the first draw of the new campaign.

The day’s second clash between Kenya Harlequin and KCB seemed to be done and dusted at the interval, KCB taking a 22-6 lead into the break.

Quins second half response was furious,cutting the 16 point half time deficit to eventually KCB by two points on two occasions, at 27-25 and 35-32.

They were in it all through, pinning KCB on the ropes for large periods of this half.

KCB walked away with the 35-32 result but Quins certainly put up a fight. A great game of rugby it was,Quins number eight Joshua Chisanga a handful on offense and defense. He scored two tries and was unlucky to be on the losing side.
