Masaku 7s Bowl final.
Kabras started off this year’s Masaku 7s edition on a low note going down 14-17 to Cheers Mate Saba in their first pool match.

Kabras booked a place in the Bowl finals after overcoming Kisumu RFC 24-0 in the Bowl Semi finals.
Leading 36-0 against university side Mean Machine at half time, Kabras were sure of a Bowl win as Eschuma showed no signs of bouncing back. They registered a 62-0 against Mean Machine in the Bowl final to be crowned as the Masaku 7s Bowl winners.
This was the biggest score in this year’s Masaku 7s rugby tournament.
Masaku 7s Plate Final.
The Plate final was a nail bitter as it was hard to predict which side would win (Kenya Harlequin FC versus French Froggies).
Quins lost none of its pool matches. They registered a 29-0 win against Dagoretti RFC and 24-0 against JKUAT Karen RFC.
Day 2 was to start on a different note as Samurai Wakulima put Kenya Harlequins to the sword with a 21-0 win in the cup quarters relegating Quins to the Plate Semis against Resolution Impala Saracens.
Quins booked a place in the plate Finals after thumping Impala 26-7 at ease in the plate semi finals.
Brian Maina, Williams Mawira, Kevin Angote, Okwomi and Max Theuri scored tries for Quins to ensure a 36-24 win against the French Froggies RFC. Kenya Harlequins were crowned the 2015 Masaku 7s Plate winners.
Masaku 7s 3rd and 4th Place.
Homeboyz RFC and Young Turks battled it out for the 3rd and 4th place. Something that rarely happens, happened at this stage.
Former Kenya under 19s head coach and current Homeboys RFC , Paul Murunga was also the Young Turks’ Head coach.
The deejays went at the break leading 10-0. Paul Amunavi Murunga held the half time teams talk with both teams. “We wonder what he was telling them” but what we know, whichever team won, the win would be attributed to Pauh!
Homeboyz RFC won the match 29-5. Homeboyz RFC’s Fly half Augustine Lugonzo conversion rate was good as he converted almost all if not all of the conversions he attempted to drill home.
Masaku 7s Main cup winners.
Top Fry Nakuru faced a tough Samurai Wakulima outfit in the Masaku 7s cup final. The rift valley giants fielded a very young and talented squad as Wakulima’s squad was full of Kenya 7s players.
Patrice Agunda opened the floodgates for Wakulima. Michael Agevi and Oscar Ouma touched down for Samurai Wakulima before halftime.
Wakulima’s Dan Sikuta, Cyprian Kuto and Horace otieno each scored in the second half to win with ease.
Samurai Wakulima thrashed Nakuru 32-0 in the Main cup final.
The unstoppable Wakulima scored 31 tries and conceded one try in their 6 matches. The solo try they conceded was against Homeboyz RFC in the cup semi final which was scored by Collins Shikoli.
