KENYA CUP: Mwamba To Open Campaign Against Western Bulls

Mwamba RFC will open their 2015/2016 Kenya Cup campaign at home against Western Bulls on November 21st in a new look league that has been divided into two pools, according to fixtures released by Kenya Rugby Union.

Mwamba RFC is grouped in Pool A together with Kenya Cup defending champions KCB RFC, Strathmore Leos, Homeboyz, Western Bulls, Mean Machine and new boys Thika RFC. The other pool has runners up Kabras RFC, Nakuru RFC, Impala, Nondies, Kenya Harlequins, Blak Blad and debutants Bungoma Sharks.
