Bamburi rugby series moves to Kakamega this weekend
02 May 2014, 13:30
Nairobi - Saturday 3 May 2014 brings with it match day two in the Bamburi Rugby
Super Series. Two matches are slated to take place at the Kakamega High
School grounds, the day's early kick off pitting Papa Nguvu against the
varsity lads from UAP Kifaru in Pool B. This will pave way for the day's
top draw pitting defending champions Ndovu against Uganda's Victoria
Protectors in Pool A.
Papa, who have previously played under
the name Lions in past editions in the period running up to 2013,
started their 2014 campaign on a winning note, seeing off hosts Hima
Rwenzori 25-6 last weekend at the Kyadondo Rugby Grounds in Kampala.
Augustine Lugonzo was voted man of the match in that game and is
expected to lead his charges against a Kifaru side that is very likely
to be full of running. Papa will come into this one looking to register a
second successive win, a result that will book them a semi final berth
while Kifaru come into this tie looking to start their campaign with a
win that will boost their semi final qualification hopes at the close of
pool play on Saturday 24 May.
This match will pave way for the
showstopper, defending champions Ndovu,( an amalgamation of Nakuru,
Western Bulls and Kisumu) starting their title defense against Uganda's
Victoria Protectors. Ndovu have pitched camp in Kakamaega from Wednesday
30 April, an indicator of how serious they are taking this fixture.
They will look to start the campaign with a win.
Victoria find themselves in last chance
motel, coming into this fixture with the full knowledge a loss ends
whatever interest and ambitions they have in the 2014 tournament.
These fixtures will be broadcast live on Zuku Sports Channel 301.
