In Summary
  • Catholic Monks are away to Egerton, USIU host Ngong, while Western Bulls will be away in Eldoret. USIU will still remain with a game against South Coast’s Pirates.
  • Victory for Catholic Monks will see them claim the first automatic place in the semi-final.
  • Even if Western Bulls are to win on Saturday, they will have to wait for USIU’s last duel with Pirates to know who takes the remaining automatic place in the semi-finals.

Former Kenya Cup sides Kisii and Mombasa Rugby Football Clubs will battle for the remaining slot in the semi-final play-offs as the regular Kenya Rugby Union (KRU) Championship league ends on Saturday.

University of Eldoret and Egerton, who follow in eighth and ninth places with 26 points each, are out of contention for the play-off.

There is also another interesting battle involving the top three teams- Catholic University Monks and former Kenya Cup sides Western Bulls and United States International University-who are vying for two automatic places in the semi-finals.
