Mombasa relegated, Strathmore to decide Mwamba's fates
By Eric Njiru | Wed 14 Feb, 2018 14:27

Mombasa RFC is technically relegated from the 2017/18 Kenya Cup with two matches to go. 

Mombasa is 12th with no points and even if they are to win their remaining matches they would go to 10 points which would leave them at 11th, a relegation position.

They cannot catch up with Mwamba who are 10th with 13 points. Mombasa has gone for nine matches without a win or a draw. They have also failed to pick any kind of a bonus scoring 34 points and conceding 508.

Mwamba making playoffs? 

Mwamba’s fate of making the playoffs will be decided this weekend by Strathmore-Kisii clash. If Strathmore beat Kisii even without a bonus, they will move to 25 points at position six which will be unreachable for Mwamba.

If Mwamba win their last two matches, they will have 23 points in total. They play Blak Blad and Nakuru RFC in their closing fixtures.

Kisii to follow Mombasa?

Being seven points behind Mwamba, Kisii will have to win at least two matches to save their Kenya Cup life or they will play Championship rugby next season.

Nondies are four points off the playoff position and that can extend to eight or nine if Strathmore beat Kisii. The Red Lion will need to beat Nakuru and Quins and wait for other results to favour them if they are to make the cut.

KCB to confirm semifinal place?

Champions KCB will confirm a place in the semis if they Kabras Sugar in their next match. A win for Kabras could, however, see Homeboyz catch up with KCB. Homeboyz play Mombasa RFC in their next match.

Kenya Harlequins needs to earn just one point to be sure of a playoff place. They can only miss if they lose to Kisii and Nondies while Nakuru and Nondies win all their remaining matches.
