Kabras Sugar RFC are the 2023 Kenya Cup Champions. The sugar men defeated Kenya Commercial Bank 19-9 in an epic final match played at the Kakamega Agricultural Showground, Kakamega on Saturday; and graced by Kakamega County Governor H.E FCPA Fernandes Barasa, an ardent Kabras RFC supporter.

The Kakamega based charges led by a slim 3-0 at the half time break and made their intention known in the early exchanges of second half by extending the lead to 6-0 after a successful penalty kick by South African import Ntubeni Dukisa. KCB’s backline stalwart Darwin Mukidza reduced the margin to 6-3 but received a reply almost immediately from the Kabras fullback for a 9-3 score. Mukidza slotted in two more penalties but an infringement from KCB’s loose head prop saw centre referee Victor Oduor award the home side a penalty try stretching the hosts lead further to 16-9. The three extras were added in the dying minutes of the game.

Kabras are now back to back Kenya Cup winners having won this year’s league title unbeaten.
