The Catholic University of Eastern Africa men’s rugby team popularly known as The Monks, were on Sunday night crowned as the winners of the Masaku 7’s Division A main cup after beating Kisii University in the final game that was held in the Kenyatta Stadium, Machakos County.

Captained by Bremen Hamisi, The Monks had to fight off stiff completion in the group stages from the likes of Kilunda RFC and MKU-Thika to book a quarter final berth against Makueni RFC whom they easily overcame to face Kenyatta Universities’ Black Blad in the semi-finals before finally facing the team from Kisii in the penultimate game of the tournament in which they put in a stellar performance to lift the main cup.

Speaking to one of the players, Morgan, he attributed their success to “hard work and self- belief.”

Congratulations CUEA Rugby team!!

See all the action that was at the Masaku 7s here.
