Bamburi Rugby Super Series continues this weekend

23 May 2014, 12:22

Nairobi - Bamburi Rugby Super Series defending champions Ndovu host Bollore Chui in a match day three fixture at the Nakuru Athletic Club on Saturday 24 May. This match, the top bill on a double header is a battle for Pool A supremacy, the winner finishing top and setting up a semi final clash against the runner up from Pool B.

Ndovu, with a large contingent of players from Kenya Cup champions Nakuru RFC, as well as a sprinkling of players from Western Bulls and Kisumu sit top of the log in this group with 5 points, having secured maximum points in their opening fixture, a 40-6 romp against Victoria Protectors on Saturday 3 May. 
Head Coach Dominique Habimana has at his disposal a strong squad that features the likes of Edwins Makori, Kelvin Omiyo, Elkins Musonye, Dallo Chituyi and co, and they will surely take the game to their opponents. 
The Bollore Africa Logistics sponsored Chui started with a 10-3 win away to the Victoria Protectors on BRSS opening day. They rested on match day two and will return to the fray, knowing that any kind of victory against Ndovu gives them pole position in Pool A.
The Enos Otieno coached side is heavily laden with youth, the likes of Quinto Ongo, Ian Minjire, Hosea Nyerere featuring alongside a bunch of experience players including Paul Oimbo, Linus Simiyu and Duncan Ekasi. Their task in Nakuru is clear, to emerge victorious. 
This game is very likely to be won or lost in the forwards. 
The second match on the cards, which is actually the day's early kick off pits UAP Kifaru against Uganda's Hima Rwenzori. This is a make or break clash for both sides, the winner earning a semi final berth, but after the permutations have been sorted out. 
The Charles Ngovi coached UAP Kifaru fell to an 8-6 loss to Papa Nguvu in their opening fixture on Saturday 3 May while Hima Rwenzori also fell to a 25-6 loss to Papa Nguvu on BRSS opening day in Kampala. 
It is surely do or die for both sides. Kifaru,featuring players from Kenyan universities, will rely on the likes of livewire former Kenya youth international George Mutuku who had a good outing on match day as well as never say die captain Rocky Aguko. 
Rwenzori, BRSS losing finalists in 2012 and 2013 have in their ranks a couple of former Ugandan internationals Tony "Stone" Lugya and Timothy Mudoola as well as Augustine Kasansula, who has been widely described by Ugandan rugby pundits as a joy to watch.
This match is very likely to be a tense encounter, the team that keeps its head will run off with the result.
Fans will pay Ksh 300 to watch both matches. For those unable to reach the match venue, both matches will be aired live on Zuku Sports Channel 300.
