Rift Valley nationwide side Kitale RFC has secured promotion to the KRU Championship for the 2018/19 season.

Kitale beat Swara 12-8 in the nationwide semis to proceed to next week's final.

By virtue of reaching the final, Kitale secures the first slot alongside the winner of MMUST/Eldoret.

Jeremy Chimwani scored the first try to put Kitale RFC 5-3 ahead at the interval only for Swara to take an 8-5 immediately after the break. Shadrack Chumba would however seal the game with a try that was converted by Chimwani.

Swara will however have a chance to qualify for the championship through a playoff match against 9th and 10th placed team in the Championship.
