Lunch Bar Quins (6) v Kenya Commercial Bank (2)
RFUEA Grounds

KCB, currently placed second on the Kenya Cup log  will come into this fixture off the back of a 57-0 home win over Kisumu in their last Kenya Cup outing. They are pursuit of a win that could see them top the table depending on the outcome of events involved Mwamba, Strathmore with whom they are level on points and Nakuru who are just a point adrift. All in all, this should be a very competitive fixture, living up to the billing of previous matches between two sides. Not one to be missed.

Hosts and reigning league champions Lunch Bar Quins have since their three match winless streak that culminated in a  13-0 loss away to Nakuru on 14 January 2012, gone two matches unbeaten, registering back to back wins against difficult opponents in the form of Mwamba RFC and next door neighbors Impala RFC. They face another difficult opponent in the form of visiting Kenya Commercial Bank. These two sides kept their fans on the edge of their seats last season, Quins beating KCB 30-24 in the first leg encounter when Allan Omuka chased a seemingly hopeless cause, gathering the ball with his side trailing 23-24, his converted giving Quins the win. One would also have to refer to the Enterprise Cup quarter final where Isaac Adimo’s left foooted drop goal with Quins trailing 20-23 saw them eventually beat the bankers 23-22, marching on to the semis before lifting the title. When these two sides last met in the Kenya Cup, the match ended in a 19-19 draw/ The Lunch Bar Quins may have had a slow start to the season but after two straight wins that have their tails up, they will look to make it three wins on the trot as they maintain they push for yet another successful title defense. They rallied from 10-13 down to beat hosts Impala 22-13 on match day eight and will relish the opportunity to face KCB.
