KRU Championship week 11 talking points

Western Bulls fortified the Bull Ring with a 13-6 win over USIU, meaning they take pole position in the championship league at the same time extending their home unbeaten record to 14 matches.

Obviously a big weekend for Echulusi as the win takes them to 41 points, scoring 204 points while conceding 114 along the way. Bulls have now strongly stated their intent to get promotion at the end of the season, being the only team that has lost one match and drawn one.

Catholic monks are second with 39 points despite suffering a 15-9 defeat at the hands of Kisii RFC in a match played at Kisii school over the weekend. The match proved so tight that no team could score a try on either end of the pitch meaning it all came down to the team with the best kicker where Aggrey Kitoi came out on top for Kisii. Kisii are a further 8th with 20 points, two positions out of play off berths.

USIU who have suffered three losses so far this season had to settle for third position having amassed 35 points despite  falling to Bulls. The Martials seem to be struggling to keep up as they face teams from the western conference. A loss away to UOE, a draw against Kisii at home and now a loss to Bulls will surely leave the once championship leaders with a lot to ponder over.

Kisumu got back to winning ways with a narrow 13-11 win over Egerton Wasps, meaning they maintain fourth position with 28 points, seven behind third placed USIU.

MMUST recorded a huge 51-8 win over Ngong Warriors to announce their return to their home ground after a long while. MMUST who have not had an impressive run on the road will obviously look to use their home ground advantage to win the remaining home games. They are 5th with 23 points.

UOE who had to settle for a draw against SC Pirates are 6th with 22 points, while Mombasa are seventh with 21 points. Mombasa have conceded more points than any other team in the league, having allowed in 57 points, one more point than Egerton who have allowed in 56.

Egerton University are 9th with a total of 19 points, followed by SC Pirates who are on 17 points, two points above relegation zone.

Pirates and Ngong are 11th and 12th with 17 and 15 points.
