Prinsloo winners Menengai Oilers have been put up against Masinde Muliro, Nondescrip and Vihiga Granites in Pool ‘A’ ahead of this weekend’s Kakamega Sevens.
Oilers must get to the final to win their first-ever national sevens title and Head coach Gibson Weru believes they have the momentum from winning on home ground.
Strathmore, who were runners-up in Nakuru are leaders of Pool B and will face Mwamba, Catholic Monks and Kisumu RFC.
Strathmore sit third on the table with 85 points and will need both Menengai Oilers and KCB to drop points if they are to win the overall title.
Homeboyz RFC are in a challenging Pool C, where they take on Kenya Harlequin, hosts Western Bulls, and Nakuru RFC while reigning champions KCB have to contend with Kabras Sugar, Impala and Daystar Falcons in Pool ‘D’.
So far there are five different winners of the circuit, making it the most competitive series in the recent past, with KCB winning the Kabeberi and Strathmore bagging the Christie Sevens.
Mwamba joined the party by winning the Driftwood Sevens as Homeboyz took over Dala sevens while Oilers settled for Prinsloo.
The tournament has received a boost after Kenya Breweries Limited, through its flagship brand, Tusker announced Sh2 million sponsorship boost for the tournament.
