The past couple of years have been quite a rollercoaster ride for the team   marked with different magnitudes of highs and lows. Having featured in the Kenya Cup finals in 2013 where the team lost to Nakuru Rugby Club, the best shot the team has had in the top tier league is the semi finals in the 2014-15 season.

The following two seasons didn’t go well for the team where in the 2016-17 the team was battling to survive relegation. The drastic drop in performance was highly attributed to a mass exodus of players to other clubs, most of them having graduated. The team however managed to get back on its feet during the playoffs in the 2017-2018 season. During this season, the team took home the Mwamba Cup, a major trophy for the 10 aside cohort after a very long spell. For the 7s cohort, over the past five years, the team has only managed to win just two major trophies; Dala 7s in 2013 and Nakuru 10s in 2016.
