Nairobi — Nakuru RFC rose to the top of the Kenya Rugby Union women's rugby 10=a-side festival after seeing off a tough Impala side 5-0 in the final of the fourth round held at the Impala Club on Sunday.
With the victory, Nakuru rose top of the standings with 17 points, same as second placed Impala but with a better points difference.
Freshia Awino crossed the chalk for the all important try as Nakuru dismantled the defensive wall mounted by Impala with the girls from the rift remaining in contention to become the first club outside the capital city to lift the crown.
