After the Impala Floodlits, The Bamburi Super Series and a gruelling 17 round campaign, the battle for the Kenyan championship comes down to 80 minutes on Kenya Cup Match Day 18.

Defending champions KCB Lions face off against Kenya Harlequin on Saturday afternoon at the RFUEA to fight for the Kenya Cup title.

To borrow but one sporting cliché, the form guide goes out the window.

Nothing else but what happens on Saturday afternoon matters. Not the star players, not the coaches, not the best tries,tackles, dummies and drop goals of the season, nor the best fans. Nothing but the final result. And ultimately, this is why we are rugby fans.

In the words of a popular Australian rugby league commentator Phil Gould, “the regular season is a Mickey Mouse competition. The only thing that matters is winning trophies”.
