It couldn't have been a better day for KCB at Cristie 7s, the fifth and penultimate leg of the Stanbic Bank National Sevens Circuit on Sunday 1 September, 2019, as, other than win the title, the team provided a list of individual performers.

Levy Amunga, their off season acquisition from Blak Blad, was named joint top scorer and top point scorer and was ultimately named the Most Valuable Player (MVP) at the close of the event at RFUEA grounds taking over from last year's winner; Ugandan  Solomon Okia from Kenya Harlequin.

With all individual awards in the bag, Amunga follows on the steps of team mate Vincent Onyala who scooped all awards at Kakamega 7s and Dala 7s. Other than Onyala, the other MVP's this season have been from Mwamba; Billy Odhiambo (Kabeberi 7s) and Mike Okello (Prinsloo 7s). 

In being best at Christie's, Amunga made the dream team with three of his team mates; Andrew Amonde, Geoffrey Okwach and Mike Wanjala. Prinsloo MVP Okello also made the list with team mate Tony Omondi.

Monate Akuei of Nakuru, who also made the Prinsloo 7s dream team completes the list.
