KCB went top of the Kenya Cup log with a 33-3 demolition of bitter rivals Top Fry Nakuru at the Lion’s Den in Ruaraka following the third round of the 2016/17 Kenya Cup played over the weekend.

Starting the day sitting second to Kenya Harlequin but separated by point’s difference the Bankers ran in five tries, added a conversion and two penalties against Nakuru’s sole penalty early in the second half.

Darwin Mukidza, Peter Karia, Oliver Mangeni, Collins Wanjala and Nick Ongeri scored for KCB as Henry Ayah sent in Nakuru’s penalty.

“Nakuru came well prepared but we  had done our assignment well, we knew they were coming hard on us that’s why we kept our lines well, played as we planned and got the points,” said Kenya 7s Shujaa captain and KCB veteran Andrew Amonde.

“It’s the third game of the season so we will keep on marching forward, harder matches are coming so we are going to be tested,” he added.

Quins and Impala Saracens join the Bankers at the peak of the table on 15 points apiece; Harlequins got their third win of the season after defeating Menengai Cream Homeboyz 31-24 while the Sarries came back from behind to beat Strathmore Leos 24-12 at the impala grounds both matches played on Saturday.

Reigning Kenya Cup champions Kabras Sugar RFC climbed up two places to fourth in the log on 12 after whipped Mwamba 20 -11 who are yet to win a game this season.

Losing their first match this season over the weekend Homeboyz retained their fifth position with 10 while Nakuru went down two places to sixth with 9 points after they were mauled by the 2015 champions.

Nondescript who are seventh on the log got their first win of the season to end memories of a recent poor record against Blak Blad and a winless run two weeks, thrashing Blak Blad 29-8 adding misery to their opponents who are at the bottom of the log.

The fourth round of the Kenya Cup Season continues this weekend.
