Top fry Nakuru are the new Dala 7s Champions.
The Nakuru County side were forced to come from behind to edge out Christie 7s Champions Kenya Harlequins 15-14 in the final played at the Kisumu showground on Sunday 9 August, 2015.
Allan Odiyo and David Kivuti planted two unconverted tries to hand Nakuru a 10-00 lead but Willy Ambaka shrugged off three tackles to dot one for Quins that was converted by Kevin Keegan for a 10-07 score line at half time.
In the second half Brian Okwomi grounded a try with Eden Agero adding the extra to send Quins ahead 14-10.
But Nakuru RFC were to have the last laugh to deny Quins their first Dala 7s trophy since 2012 when Kivuti completed his brace for a narrow 15-14 win that delivered the Dala 7s trophy to Nakuru’s cabinet.
