Kabras, Strathmore to be handed Kenya Cup, Championship titles

Kabras Sugar are set to be handed Kenya Cup title after Kenya Rugby Union found it hard to complete the season. 

All Kenya Rugby Union competitions have been on hold since March 7.

KRU director of competitions Oscar Mango said “an agreement had been reached to hand the title to Kabras Sugar after it became extremely hard to resume normal services”.

Kabras finished top after the regular season with KCB taking up second position.

This will be a disappointment to sides like Homeboyz Rugby and Impala Saracens who were hoping to end their trophy drought in 2020.

Strathmore Leos are set to be awarded the Championship title after winning all 16 regular matches. Just like Kenya Cup, there will be no playoffs, according to Mango.

MMUST, who have had a fantastic season, will miss out on a possible coronation but will be promoted to the Kenya Cup.

The likes of Mean Machine and USIU are dealt a huge blow as they will have to try their luck again in the Championship.

On Championship qualifiers, Mango said they are still weighing several options. “Championship qualifiers are likely to go on even if it’s August or September”. 

Enterprise Cup and Mwamba Cup are likely not to continue further as KRU hopes there will be time to play the national Sevens circuit.

Western Bulls, Kisumu RFC, Mombasa and Kisii RFC remain relegated. 

Check the date. April fools!
