Second placed Impala Saracens headline Pool B and will renew their rivalry with third placed Homeboyz RFC in this weekend’s Dala Sevens in Kisumu.

Kakamega based Western Bulls and newly promoted championship side Kisii RFC, are the other teams set to battle it out with the big guns in Pool B.

Kabras Sugar, who have been clustered in pool A will  travel to Kisumu knowing that a win will propel them to victory and  guarantee themselves a maiden Sevens silverware if they get to the final, regardless of whether they win it or not.

The sugar millers will however have to go past Kenya Cup wounded sides Nondies and season surprise package Menengai Oilers before booking a date with newly promoted MMUST in their final game of the day.

In Pool C, fourth placed Nakuru will battle it out with KCB, the ever present Blakblad and hosts Kisumu RFC.

Sixth placed KCB are 18 points off leaders Kabras and their chances of clinching the title are minimal.

Kenya Harlequins, Mwamba RFC, and Strathmore Leos and last weekend’s Division Two champions Makueni RFC will square it out in pool D.

Impala will be crossing their fingers that luck will be on their side as they look to end a 13 year wait for silverware. For Impala to win the title, they must qualify for the Cup quarters and hope Kabras falter.

However, despite the anxiety, the titles fortunes still remain in the sugar millers’ hands as they only need to qualify for the Dala Cup finals to lift the maiden series title.

If the miller fails to get to the final, then the obligation will be on the top two sides to fight it off to get to the final.
