Kenya Commercial Bank RFC made it a perfect seven wins away from home
with a 14-7 win over home side Nakuru RFC at the Nakuru Athletic Club
on Saturday, a result that put paid to the Lions title ambitions. The
first half saw plenty of action with Nakuru's Martin Opondo and KCB's
Anthony Ogot paying courtesy calls to the sin bin at various stages of
this half that ended 0-0. The second half saw the Lions touch down
twice in twelve minutes through Ronnie Mwenesi and Andrew Amonde.
Peter Mutai successfully converted both tries. Sensing time was not on
their side, KCB continued attacking but could not translate possession
into points,eventually missing out on the much sought bonus point that
would have gifted them the title. Nakuru clawed their way back into
the match and were rewarded with a try late in the game. Simon Wariuki
converted for a 14-7 scoreline. KCB finished the season unbeaten away
from home but this statistic eventually played second fiddle to the
fact that the league title would not be returning to the Lions Den.
