What to expect from champs KCB RFC in 2020 Sevens Circuit

Kenya Commercial Bank RFC will leave no margin for error when they launch their title defence of the Stanbic Bank sponsored National Sevens Circuit.

Last term the Bankers were flawless sweeping all to win the title at the Driftwood Sevens in Mombasa and will be keen to replicate the feat.

Kabras who have emerged as a contender for the Kenya Cup this season will definitely be out to challenge KCB who can however not be written off. Like the proverbial cat with nine lives, the bankers have always confounded even themselves even when it seems they are about to lose a title.

This year, the circuit will be contested over 6 rounds between July and September 2020.

Action kicks off in the Mount Kenya region with the Kabeberi Sevens on 25-26 July in Meru before heading to Kenya’s capital city Nairobi for the Christie Sevens the following week.

Teams will then travel to Western Kenya for the third round on 15-16 August in Kakamega before making the journey to the coast for the Driftwood Sevens from 22-23 August in Mombasa

The fifth round will take place in the Lakeside when Kisumu hosts the Dala Sevens on 5-6 September with the circuit finale happening at the Prinsloo Sevens in the Central Rift Valley town of Nakuru on 12-13 September.
