Five Mwamba players made it to the list of seven best at the close of Kabeberi 7s as the second leg of Stanbic Bank National Sevens Circuit came to a close at the Kinoru Stadium, Meru on Sunday 28 July 2019.

Steve Sikuta, Billy Odhiambo - later named the tournament's Most Valuable Player, Greg Odhiambo, Collins Injera and Tony Omondi all from Mwamba made the dream team.

History books

Kulabu were however generous in leaving two slots to Nakuru's Walter Okoth and Davis Nyaundi of Menegai Oilers.

Of the seven, only Injera is making a return to a dream team this season having made it last weekend at Kakamega 7s during the opening Stanbic 7s leg as Mwamba claimed Bronze. 

The five deservedly made it to the finest list after delivering the coveted trophy Mwamba's way after a 27-7 rout of Menengai Oilers in the final.

The win meant Mwamba, coached by Kevin Wambua Mwema, ended years of searching for their own tournament crown having last won it in September 2015 after a pulsating 26-22 win over Impala at RFUEA grounds.

The Meru win over Oilers enters Mwamba to the Kabeberi 7s history books as they now become the club with the most titles alongside Impala since it was introduced back in 1988 in honour of one of their founders George Mwangi Kabeberi.

The 2015 win over Quins, while being coached by John Mbai, meant the two tied with six Kabeberi 7s titles apiece. 

Triumph over Oilers made it seven for Mwamba adding on to previous titles in 1988, 1989, 1990, 1991, 2010 and 2015.
