A set of tries from Johnstone Olindi and Smith Muhoya was what KCB largely needed to see off Nondescripts 39-8 at RFUEA grounds in Nairobi as the Kenya Cup resumed on Saturday after a two-month suspension owing to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Curtis Lilako and Felix Ojoo also came in with single try each to add to the bankers score card.
The win cemented the Cup holders spot at the League standings with 20 points after match week five.

The defending champions were the better side despite playing the greater part of the game with 14 players following a red card to Wilfred Waswa for dangerous play.
The Bankers scored six tries; two in the first half and four after the intermission.
Victor Rogen’s late try for Nondescripts proved too little too late to inspire a comeback.
At the Nakuru Athletic Club, the double headers saw Menengai Oilers trounce debutants Masinde Muliro University 24-10 while hosts Top Fry Nakuru were fried by Mwamba RFC 15-25.
Strathmore Leos rallied from behind to draw 20-20 with Kenya Harlequins in another double header played at RFUEA grounds.
