Do ro die as teams eye top four finish

The battle for a top four finish in the Kenya Cup league continues this weekend when majority of the teams play their last fixtures of the year.

Third-placed Kenya Harlequins visit the Lions’ den to take on KCB in the only match today. Quins took advantage of Nondies’ loss to the bankers last weekend to hammer Mombasa 98-8 and jump to third place.

Quins, however, still have two games in hand against Impala and Homeboyz. Winning both matches could propel them to the top of the league.

Tomorrow, Kenya Cup champions Nakuru host Impala at the Nakuru Athletic Club and a win will not only extend their lead atop the standings, but ensure they end the year unbeaten.

Wanyore have 30 points from their six fixtures, picking up a bonus in every game.

Nakuru’s closest challengers Strathmore Leos welcome Homeboyz to The Cage in Madaraka.  Leos failed to pick up a bonus point in their 33-10 demolition of Impala, leaving them one point behind Nakuru on the log.

Mwamba and Nondies face off at Nairobi Railways Club. Mwamba are fourth on 20 points, while Nondies are fifth with 19.

Comeback

Western Bulls, who are in 10th position will take on to Kenya Cup debutants Eldoret.

Bottom of the table Kisumu will head to Mombasa. The game is, however, in doubt as Kisumu have requested postponement to February as they are yet to receive tansport and their allowances from Kenya Rugby Union (KRU).

The local governing body had earlier in the season committed to pay for all travelling expenses for teams that are financially troubled.
