OVERVIEW: KENYA CUP 2022/23
The Kenya Cup Draft fixtures are out and fans across the country have been going through them waiting for the commencement of the league.
Unsurprisingly, there is talk about who will emerge the best ahead of the rest.
With the promotion of Three-time Kenya Cup Champions, Mean Machine, as winners of the KRU Championship, they will bring that Eschuma firepower, especially with Kenya Cup matches returning to the Workshop. Catholic University Monks also gained promotion to Kenya Cup as a losing finalist in the KRU Championship League. The two sides will look to emulate the form of Strathmore Leos and MMUST Rugby who got promoted two seasons ago and managed to retain Kenya Cup status at the expense of Nondies and Impala who fell to the second division.
The Titleholders Kabras will be looking at stamping their authority on the league as they seek to defend their title. This will be countered by last season's surprise finalist, Menengai Oilers, who beat KCB to make their maiden Kenya Cup Final. They pushed title holders to the final minute and will be looking at building from that performance coupled with being crowned National Sevens Circuit Champs for 2022.
KCB is a wounded lion out for revenge and will be looking at regaining their title this season after finishing third last time out. They overcame a Strathmore Leos side, in a 'Big Cat Duel' at The Den, who are on great resurgence to former glory days and are led by ex-kulabu captain Louis 'Fathe' Kisia. Mwamba, Nakuru, Homeboyz, MMUST, and Blak Blad will aim to secure play-off positions to stay afloat this season.
It will be a hotly contested Kenya Cup Season where the odds are tighter than ever before. On a given day, any of the teams can outdo each other setting up an entertaining season 2022/23.
