Nairobi - Homeboyz RFC were crowned champions of the Great Rift Blazing Sevens
Championships held at the Nakuru Athletic Club over the weekend.
The champions had to work hard before winning the title though and
despite winning two of their matches also drew one and lost one to score
seven points in the five-team tournament which also featured teams from
the Kenya Cup and Erick Shirley Shield Leagues.
Homeboyz kicked off the competition with a 12-12 draw with Nakuru RFC
before beating Kabras 19-5 and Nakuru II 15-7 and then suffered a 15-0
loss to Wakulima in their final match.
The Great Rift Blazing Sevens Championships' tournament director
Lameck Ongati said they were preparing teams for the National Sevens
Circuit season which starts in August.
“We needed time to improve on fitness of players by engaging them in
this tournament ahead of the National Sevens Circuit season coming over
in a few weeks,” Ongati told FeverPitch at the Nakuru Athletic Club on Saturday.
Homeboyz secured the championship win thanks to a superior point
aggregate after they finished the tournament tied on seven points with
Kabras RFC and Wakulima.
Kabras finished as runners up ahead of Wakulima who had to be satisfied with third place.
