Over the weekend Curtains for the Kenya Cup Rugby competition fell with a number teams being ushered in to the relegation zone with others gaining promotion.

The 40 year run for Mean Machine in the Kenya Cup Came to an end after they were beaten 21-12 by Top Fry Nakuru at Nakuru Athletic Club.

Playing out of the University of Nairobi’s main campus, Mean Machine made their Kenya Cup debut in 1977, upsetting the top order by clinching that season’s title. 

Mean Machine and Western Bulls are now officially relegated and their spot will be taken by KRU Champions league leaders Catholic Monks and Resolution Kisii respectively.
