Buoyed by a hard-fought 11-8 win over Western Bulls, Kisii RFC coach Eric Bosire wants his team to target a return to Kenya Cup.

“This was a huge win for us considering the fact that before today’s games, Bulls were on top of the log. The win means a lot to us as we target a playoff position,” said Bosire who led the team to Kenya Cup in 2017.

He said if his boys continue with the same winning mentality, they can return to Kenya Cup. “It is achievable but at the moment, we want to be in the playoff bracket,” he added.

His Bulls counterpart Bram Shikanda said the loss was a small dent in their bid to return to Kenya Cup.

“The boys didn’t stick to the game plan. Losing is part of the game and we must pick ourselves up and aim at winning the next game,” said Shikanda.

During the game played at Gusii Stadium, Brian Agalomba gave Kisii the lead with an unconverted try but Suleiman Abubakar equalised for Bulls just before half time.

In the second half, Aggrey Kitoi scored two penalties for Kisii while Henry Odhiambo notched a penalty for Bulls.

Catholic Monks reclaimed the lead in the KRU Championship League table after a narrow 16-15 win over Mombasa at the Mombasa Sports Club.

Monks lead with 48 points while Bulls dropped to the second position with 46 points. USIU remained third with 40 points despite not playing this weekend. USIU’s game against South Coast Pirates was postponed.

In other matches played over the weekend, Masinde Murilo University caused a major upset beating former Kenya Cup side Silverstone Kisumu RFC 41-20 while Egerton Wasps condemned Ngong warriors to further misery beating the Kajiado County-based team 31-5. The Hosts University of Eldoret defeated Kitale RFC 13-3.
