NAIROBI, Kenya- The battle for supremacy in the 2018 Kenya Cup league standings took center stage over the weekend with KCB RFC looking to extend their lead at the summit of the table.

A solitary point separates second-place Homeboyz RFC and Kabras Sugar RFC with the two rugby powerhouses trailing the league leaders by four and five points in that order.

The Kenya Cup match-day nine saw KCB RFC maintain their dominant title quest with a resounding 60-0 hammering of hosts Mombasa RFC, who found the opponents white-wash area hard to come-by.

Homeboyz RFC leapfrogged Kabras RFC to second place beating Kenyatta University’s BlakBlad 27-13, while Kabras made light work of league debutantes Resolution Kisii RFC with a 47-15 dismissal at the Mamboleo Showgrounds.

At Railways, Mwamba RFC registered their second win of the season with an astute 53-12 victory over Nondescripts RFC.

Strathmore Leos RFC put up a spirited fight over SportPesa Quins RFC only to go down 23-6 to record their fourth loss in their dismal Kenya Cup campaign.

Resolution Impala Saracens RFC survived a Nakuru RFC scare to bag a 43-36 win over the Wanyore to ensure the Ngong Road-based side rounded up the top four in the league standings.
