A total of 5 matches were on the Championship menu last weekend,with the USIU vs JKUAT match failing to take place.

As early as the second matchday,Menengai Oilers,Western Bulls and Mean Machine have already started angling themselves as the clear favourites to gain promotion to the 2018/19 Kenya Cup season.

Western Bulls 41-10 UoE Trojans

Echulusi managed to claim an emphatic bonus point win over the students in a match staged at the bullring last Saturday.The huge win,aided by a Duncan Abuyeka brace showed the side’s early intention to regain its top flight status.

Machine 27-8 SC Pirates

Trailing 8-5 at the interval,Eschuma turned on the style in the second half,managing tries courtesy of Sharack Munoko and Antony Obonyo to seal their second win of the campaign.

Menengai Oilers 65-10 Moi

Gibson Weru had assembled all his arsenal for this clash as he recalled the likes of skipper Harold Anduvate,Sam Muregi and Erick Ombasa.The result of the trio’s return who are also part of the Kenya 7s fold was of great impact.Muregi grabbed a brace with Anduvate going over the chalk once.

Kisumu RFC 15-6 Egerton Wasps

Having lost its opening match at home to Western Bulls,Kisumu will definitely be contented with the result against the university side,having won courtesy of two tries,one conversion and a penalty against Egerton’s two penalties.

Ngong RFC 20-17 CUEA Monks

Catholic Monks bid to earn promotion suffered a huge setback as they were condemned to their second loss of the season by newbies Ngong RFC at the Kibiko Secondary grounds on Saturday.Edward Opiyo will have a lot to work on if they are to realise their dream of making a return to the Kenya Cup.
