Ngong-Eldoret clash fails to kick off

The much anticipated KRU Championship promotion/relegation playoff pitting Ngong Warriors against Eldoret RFC that had been scheduled to take place at the Kibiko Secondary School grounds in Ngong this Saturday 19th May failed to get underway. 
A statement by the Kenya Rugby Union indicates that the match was not played after the field in Kibiko was deemed unfit.A ruling on the unplayed match will be made on Monday 21 May.
“The second fixture between Ngong Warriors, ninth at the close of Championship and beaten Nationwide semifinalists Eldoret failed to kick off after Ngong’s home venue at Kibiko was deemed unplayable. A verdict on the outcome of this fixture will be determined and delivered on Monday 21 May at a League Committee sitting,” an excerpt of a statement by KRU released Saturday evening reads.
While Eldoret lost the Nationwide semi final to MMUST, Ngong were at ninth position at the close of the 2017/18 KRU Championship league thus setting up this match.
