Kabras Sugar RFC managed to defend their Enterprise Cup title by beating worthy opponents KCB RFC 9-6 in the final at the RFUEA Grounds in Nairobi.
Kabras turned on the game to win their second title of the season after having won the regular league title Kenya Cup, by beating Menengai Oilers 34-28 in the final last month to end their five-year drought.
The match was a tight one and did not witness any tries, with Kabras kicking over three penalties to secure their second Enterprise Cup title.
KCB managed to kick over two penalties which were not enough to win the title for the first time since 2017, a disappointment to assistant coach Dennis Mwanja who was keen to wrap up the season with some silverware.
“Matches against Kabras are always competitive and hard-fought. I am confident we can go all the way and win the trophy,” Mwanja said prior to the game.
Both teams were deprived of the services of their Kenya players who are on duty win the national rugby team Simba in South Africa in the Currie Currie Cup but Kabras Sugar head coach Jerome Muller says the show by the young lads is an indicator that they are ready to inherit the mantle.
“The young players showed that they are ready and that they can rise up to the occasion to perform, a clear manifestation of the depth at Kabras Sugar. Our average age today was 23 and that speaks volume about our god structures,” Muller said in a post-match interview.
The win was a revenge for the Millers against the Bankers as they had been beaten 28-20 in the Kenya Cup regular season.
