League leaders Nakuru RFC visit Quins in the final round of the Kenya Cup at the RFUEA ground today.
The side known as the "Wanyore" are safely through to the semifinal playoffs with Strathmore, KCB and Mwamba odds on to join them in the semifinal playoffs.
Nakuru have been excellent this season. Led by coach Eric Situma they will not be intimidated by champions Quins at their backyard. Quins lie fifth with 30 points needing a bonus point win as well counting on fourth placed Mwamba falling to a big defeat without a bonus point against Mean Machine to book their semi final berth.
Quins thumped Kenya Commercial Bank 25-12 at the Lions Den last weekend to offer themselves a glimmer of hope of progressing to the semis .
The visitors will be banking on their robust forward play and lively back to cause damage to the home side .
Key players for Nakuru include Duncan Mwangi, Sammy Warui , and Kenya international 15s player Lawrence Buyachi at No 8 in the pack with Meshack Otieno, Mike Okombe, Gibson Weru and Simon Wariuki in the backs.
Second placed Strathmore Leos play away to Kisumu, looking to end the league phase in the top two, thus earning home ground advantage for the semis.
The varsity outfit crushed basement side Blak Blad 71-0 last weekend and Mitch Ochollla' s charges will be looking to cement second position on the log.
Third placed KCB are away to bottom placed Blak Blad looking for a win and counting on results from Nakuru and Strathmore's outings to finish in the top two and earn home ground advantage.
Fourth placed Mwamba are away to Mean Machine at the UoN Grounds. The 1984 Kenya Cup champions need just a point to reach the semis and will up their game against a side that has proved difficult opponents in previous outings.
