Home teams Nakuru RfC and Menengai Oilers excited the home fans as they stayed unbeaten on day one of Prinsloo Sevens on Saturday at the Nakuru Athletics Cub.

After seeing of Catholic Monks 36-0 in game one, Oilers went to beat Mombasa 31-7 in the next round before putting a 24-19 stop to Impala in the pool C decider. 

Nakuru had a similar run of three-in-three after seeing off champions KCB 24-19 in the final game of the day. Nakuru started out with a 24-7 win over Nondies then added a 19-5 win over Webuye.

Harlequins were part of the unbeaten club on day one as they recovered from a surprise 12-12 draw with Blak Blad in their first game to narrowly edge Kisumu 10-5 before grabbing a 21-14 win over fancied Homeboyz. 

After a massive 43-14 win over Strathmore Leos in game two, Mean Machine looked good for a place in the Cup quarters till final play put paid to their chances as they went down 14-7 to Mwamba in the final game. 

They had narrowly lost 12-10 to Kabras in game one and will accompany Leos - 26-17 losers to Mwamba in their opener, down to the challenge trophy quarters. 

For the Cup quarters Nakuru has a date with Impala as Oilers face KCB. Kabras will start it off with 'siblings' Homeboyz as Harlequins square it out with Mwamba.

In the Challenge Trophy, Machine takes on Blak Blad as Nondies, Kisumu and Monks booked Mombasa, Leos and Webuye, in that order.
