Kenya: Nakuru RFC Seek to End Five-Year Drought

Nakuru RFC are keen to end their five-year trophy drought when they face Strathmore RFC in the Kenya Cup final tomorrow at the Moi International Sports centre (MISC), Kasarani.

The Rift Valley-based side also known as Wanyore clinched the Enterprise Cup in 2008 and will be targeting their first piece of silverware in five years. It's five years since we won the last big trophy. We have had relative success in the Sevens game but the Kenya Cup final is arguably the biggest game of the club in history," added Situma. Situma said they are not underestimating Strathmore who have shown remarkable progress in their five- year stay in the Kenya Cup since 2008.

"Strathmore finished top of the group during the round robin play and we must tread carefully and play our best on Saturday (tomorrow)," added Situma. Situma and Strathmore coach Mitch Ocholla both played for Impala in the early part of the decade, winning three consecutive league titles but Situma noted that friendship will be put aside come tomorrows s final.

"We are very good friends but come tomorrow, we will have to set aside our friendship and look at winning the trophy," added Situma. He observed that the battle will be won in the forwards and admitted that he expects bruising contest against Strathmore.
