Kenya: Big Party As Nakuru RFC Crowned Kenya Rugby Champions

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.
