Kabras Sugar RFC continued with their impressive run in the Kenya Cup with a 21-3 win over Kenya Harlequins, taking their unbeaten run to nine matches.

The match played at RFUEA Grounds saw three well contructed tries; two coming from Rugby Cranes star Philip Wokorach and the other from Kenya Simbas international George Nyambua.

However, it was Kenya Harlequins that got on board first. Lyle Asiligwa gave Quins an early three-point lead and those were the only points the hosts scored.

The first try of the game came from Wokorach. The fullback sold his signature dummy that Harlequins defence line bought as Wokorach as sprinted the opposite way for Kabras’ first try which he converted.

Brian Tanga engineered the second try as he broke the Quins defence before sending the ball wide to Kevin Keegan who sidestepped his man on the wing and offloaded to Nyambua to cross. Wokorach converted for Kabras to lead 14-3 at the break.

The third and final try sprouted from deep inside Kabras half. Tanga cleared the ruck and dummied his defence, raced halfway the pitch before he was brought down. The ball was again sent wide, ending up in Wokorach’s hands and he jogged to the try line and converted for a 21-03 lead, which was also the final score.
