Top Fry Nakuru will be out for revenge when they KCB in match day eight action at the Nakuru Athletic Club on Saturday 14 January 2017. This match has the potential to bring out the thrills and spills that always come to the fore whenever these two sides meet up in the longer version of the game.
The Wanyore were on the receiving end of a 33-3 hiding in the reverse fixture played on Saturday 19 November 2016 and know only too well that a victorious response is expected as they look to keep KCB from winning in Nakuru for the first time in over six years.
After a bright start to the current campaign, that loss to KCB knocked the wind off the Wanyore’s sails, their current league position testament to this.
Saturday’s fixture before their loyal fans is the perfect opportunity for them to get things back on track.
The ever reliable Edwins Makori will once again be an influential figure for the Wanyore, tasked with marshaling his forwards including rising star Monate Atukei as well as the experienced Philip Kwame and Sammy Warui.
Wily half back and skipper Geoff Ominde will need to inspire his backs to turn up for the encounter if they are to make an impression and secure a result against the bankers who come into this tie with high confidence levels, undefeated and sitting second on the log, two points behind leaders SportPesa Quins.
Key for the bankers will be Davis Chenge who had massive game in the first leg blow out of the Wanyore. The former Kenya Sevens international links up with Peter Waitere and Rocky Aguko in the back row as they seek to snuff out any threat Nakuru may pose.
This match kicks off at 4.00pm and will be preceded by the Eric Shirley Shield encounter between the Nakuru and KCB second stringers.
