Kenya Commercial Bank and Homeboyz will face off in the final of Dala Sevens to crown the Kenya Rugby Union National Sevens Circuit.

KCB defeated Kabras Sugar 12-5 while Homeboyz rallied from behind to beat Blak Blad 22-7. Shaban Ahmed scored two tries one of which was converted with Philip Wokorach scoring the consolation try for Kabras Sugar.

In the second semi-final, Blak Blad scored a try through Levi Amunga before Charles Omondi crossed the line and Mike Wanjala. Bush Mwale, Cyprian Kuto and Jeff Oluoch scored additional tries for Homeboyz.

The arithmetic could not have been more complicated.

Homeboyz need to win the final against KCB to exert pressure on Kabras who must also win the play-off against Blak Blad. A win for KCB will hand the overall trophy to Kabras Sugar.

If Homeboyz win the final, they will reach 100 points and should Blak Blad defeat Kabras Sugar in the play off, they will also have 100 points and the overall title will be decided by the number of tries scored in the whole circuit.
