Aug 27, 2010-Kenya Harlequin and Mwamba may meet in the final of the Prinsloo Sevens which ends in Nakuru on Saturday, August 28.

The two top seeds qualified for the main cup quarter finals of this Western Union-sponsored Kenya Rugby Union National Sevens Circuit in contrasting styles. Quins scored an identical 45-0 over all their Pool A opponents while Mwamba conceded five points against Kitale RFC and seven against Nondescripts RUFC.

All but one of the top seeds made it through to the main cup quarter final semis. Kisumu RFC who reached the quarter finals of the Kenya Harlequin FC Christie sevens last weekend dropped to the Bowl after losing 15-33 to Kenya Commercial Bank.

The second day promises all the fireworks after the arrival of national seven-a-side players from Nairobi where they were part of the invited guests for the promulgation of a new Kenya Constitution. Mtaa Select scored two wins in their Pool A beating regulars Daystar University 12-7 and Bungoma 5-0.

Silverbacks, Rwanda’s national team which is the only visiting side this year found the going tough in Pool C but convincingly beat Webuye 33-0. Homeboyz recorded the biggest win of the day by beating Kenya Polytechnic 71-0 in 14 minutes. Three other teams surpassed the half century mark. Mwamba beat Egerton 57-0 with Impala registering an identical score against Kenya Polytechnic. Kenya Commercial Bank beat Mt. Kenya University 56-5.
