Former Champions KCB RFC will be aiming to beat Kenya HarlequinsKCB Sports Club,Ruaraka.

The Curtis Olago-led team is in search of their sixth Enterprise Cup title.

The Bankers trounced Catholic University of East Africa (CUEA) 70-3 in the pre-quarterfinals and saw off Northern Suburbs 65-7 in the quarters before the competition took a brief break to pave the way for the Rugby Super Series that ended last weekend.

“KCB is eager to participate in the semis of this historic competition that has strengthened the country’s rugby game. Some of our boys took part in the Rugby Super Series, while others have been intensifying their training to be ready for this event. We are urging our fans to rally behind the team on Saturday,” KCB Head Coach Curtis Olago said.

KCB, who have won the Enterprise Cup in 2004, 2007, 2014/15, 2015/16, and 2016/17 will be banking on centre player Bob Muhati, Levy Amunga, Brian Wahinya, youngsters Emmanuel Opondo, and Michael Wamalwa to propel the team to another title.

Olago, who lost the Kenya Cup title 5-29 to Kabras hopes the team can clinch this title to quench their fans thirst for a title.

After the enterprise Cup semis KCB will switch its focus to the national sevens circuit set to kick off in July.

Kenya Sevens co-captain Vincent Onyala, and Samuel Asati will miss the weekend’s action as they are in Madrid, Spain for the HSBC Grand final.

The two were instrumental as Kenya began its pool B campaign with a 19-12 win against Samoa on Friday evening.

The second enterprise Cup semifinal will pit defending champions Kabras Sugar, who will hope to claim a third consecutive Enterprise cup, against Nondescripts at the Kakamega Showground.
