“Dominance!” ….that has been the regular refrain whenever one encounters fans of two-time Kenya Cup champions Top Fry Nakuru in various forums. Well, the Wanyore will most definitely be out to put out a dominant display when they take on visiting Western Bulls at the Nakuru Athletic Club on Saturday 16 January 2016. They warmed up for this game with a 54-16 demolition job of Nondescripts last weekend and will certainly not be resting on their laurels when Echulusi come calling..or is it charging?
Dominique Habimana’s charges will gave to be wary of the Bulls charge (pun intended) as they embark on the quest to win a second match on the trot. Lawi Buyachi, Martin Muita, Edwin Okemwa, Isaiah Nyariki and the ever reliable Edwins Makori will be vital for the Wanyore.
Determination is the noun that best captures the spirit of Western Bulls performances this season. They may be currently placed tenth on the log but they certainly haven’t been embarrassed in their outings to date. They were very competitive despite losing their opening five matches and after registering a 39-6 win over Mean Machine on match day six, ran defending champions KCB ragged, fluffing a last-gasp penalty kick in front of the sticks as they played to a 27-27 draw with the bankers, a performance that got many a rugby lover talking.
Howard Okwemba will look to the leadership and vitality of Elkins Musonye who will be called upon to rally the likes of Isaac Wafula, Cyrus Kuya and Brian Bango step out and take the game to the hosts.
