30 June 2014, 13:55

Nairobi - The Kenya national 15-a side rugby team is preparing for the important clash with Madagascar which will see them put their World Cup aspirations on the line.

Kenya started their Rugby World Cup qualifying campaign on a winning note, beating Namibia 29-22 in Antananarivo on Saturday.

They found themselves trailing 12-7 at half time but dominated the second half, touching down four times to register their first win over Namibia since September 2006.

Kenya got a bonus point for scoring four tries, Namibia also got a bonus for losing by seven or less points. The second fixture saw Zimbabwe defeat hosts Madagascar 57-22.

Kenya’s next match is against Madagascar on Wednesday July 2 and they know that a big win will see them in a strong position for the title.

"We know it is an important game. We have to win it and that is our focus at the moment. We are preparing and looking forward to it, he ad coach Jerome Paarwater said.

If they beat Madagascar, Kenya will need to see off Zimbabwe to make it to their first ever World Cup.
