Up to 24 Schools will take part in this year’s edition of the Annual Blackrock Rugby Festival set for Saturday May 28, 2016 from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm.
Blackrock Rugby Festival will be launched on Thursday at the Kenya Harlequins grounds with the organizers set to shed lights on this year’s tournament.
Maseno School Jambazi put a claim to the 33rd edition of St. Mary’s Blackrock Festival, for the first time since 2013, after seeing off Strathmore I 28-00 on Saturday 23 May 2015.
To make the final, Strathmore I dethroned RVA with a 10-07 win in the semis as Maseno School took down Lenana School 28-0 to march to a third straight final.
As Maseno claimed 2015’s top honors at the tournament first held in 1983 off an initiative by the then Head Master Father Cormac O’Brachlain, Kiambu High claimed the Plate after defeating Aquinas 14-00 in the final while St. Aloysius walked home with the Bowl with a 28-00 clean out of Parklands.
