The KCB Lions are “away” Kenya Harlequin on Saturday 14 June 2008 from 4.30pm at The Lions Den as the Kenya Cup first leg comes to an end.The match takes place at Ruaraka as Quin’s home ground, the RFUEA, has been closed for the past six weeks for renovation ahead of the annual Tusker Safari Sevens.

The two sides had contrasting outings on Kenya Cup match day 8. Quins walloped former Kenya Cup champions 73-12 at the Jamhuri Park while the Lions lost their unbeaten record, throwing away a 20-3 half time lead to fall 20-32 away to Impala RFC.

Expect the Lions to come back wound as they seek to restore their pride and reclaim leadership of the Kenya Cup league from Impala who dislodged them from the top of the table with last weekend’s victory.

Eric Shirley Shield Pool A leaders, KCB Cubs will play Kenya Harlequin II at the same venue from 3.00pm The Cubs have won all five of their matches, blowing away Nakuru 58-0, Mwamba 39-14, Nondies 45-3 and Impala 15-6. They also got a walkover whenn Kisumu failed to show up and have conceded only two tries in the process. We should expect another gritty performance from them.

The Lions’ Den will keep you posted.
