Rugby fans converged at the Moi Sports Centre Karasani in Nairobi to watch the penultimate match of the rugby season on Saturday night as Nakuru RFC took on Nairobi-based Strathmore Leos.
They were competing to be crowned Kenya Cup winners which is equivalent of the Super Bowl in US American football. It was not only a sports event but a social one as well.
Many rugby fans turned up in large numbers dressed magnificently to enjoy the game. In the field, Nakuru RFC, also known as Wanyore, gave a thorough thrashing to the Strathmore students, beating them 37-3.
This was the first time a club not from Nairobi was lifting the prestigious trophy since the inaugural edition was won by Impala RFC in 1970.
