Kenya 15s rugby sides expect success in Elgon Cup

15 July 2014, 11:27

Nairobi - The Elgon Cup’s first leg took place in Kampala, Uganda on Saturday 12 July with the three representative Kenyan sides registering different results.

Kenya A gave a good account of themselves, going down 21-14 to Uganda’s Rugby Cranes in the day’s top bill. They will surely fancy their chances ahead of the return leg in Nairobi on Saturday July 19, 2014.


They trailed 8-7 at half time, the Ugandans scoring their points through Kevin Makmot (3 penalties and a conversion) and Bishop Onen’s try. They were also awarded a penalty try.


Kelvin Omiyo and Nato Simiyu landed a try apiece for Kenya A with Isaac Adimo slotting home two conversions.


Team Manager Newton Ong’alo, speaking after the match, said, “ I am very proud of the team’s performance. They gave a very good account of themselves against Uganda’s strongest available side on the day. We have restricted the Rugby Cranes to a seven point margin and are very confident of overturning that deficit and keeping the Elgon Cup in Kenya.


Lionesses devour Lady Cranes

Kenya’s Lionesses were in a ferocious mood, putting hosts and defending champions Uganda’s Lady Cranes to slaughter, running away with the 33-15 first leg result that puts them in good stead to reclaim the title when the return leg is played in Nairobi next weekend.

Narrow loss for U-19s

Kenya’s U-19s fell to a narrow 15-10 defeat at the hands of their Ugandan counterparts in the inaugural U-19 fixture. Paul Murunga’s side have their work cut out ahead of the return leg in Nairobi but will fancy their chances next Saturday,certainly having learnt from their mistakes.
