Even without speedstar Richard Kinyany who has abandoned rugby to focus on his Simu ya Jamii empire, the Lions still managed to crush Nondies 36-16 at the St. Mary’s School on Saturday on Kenya Cup Match Day 16. The reigning champions stay second on the log behind Impala who have played a match more.

The curtain raiser Eric Shirley Shield clash saw the Cubs inch closer to a first title since 2004 with a comprehensive 64-0 whitewash of Nondies II.

The league takes a break for the Elgon Cup this weekend before resuming on 23rd August when the Lions host Impala at the Lions Den. The Cubs should seal the ESS title with a win over Impala’s Boks on the same date.
