KCB winger Jacob Ojee leads the try scorers’ charts after two rounds of the 2022 National Sevens Circuit.

Ojee, who was the tournament’s MVP in 2013, has landed a total of 11 tries, one more than his KCB teammate Geoffrey Okwach and Daystar Falcons’ Patrick Odongo who are tied on 10 tries each.

Ojee put up a performance to remember on May 21-22 as he helped KCB to dethrone defending champions Mwamba and win the Kabeberi Sevens title at RFEUA.

He captained the bankers to glory as he finished the tournament with the most tries; six. The bankers were unbeaten in the two-day event.

The Kenya Simbas winger also made the Kabeberi Sevens team of the tournament alongside his teammate Bob Muhati, Menengai Oiler’s Austine Sikutwa and Strathmore Leos quartet of Branson Madigu, Stephen Osumba, Festus Shiasi and George Ooro.

  The Strathmore Leos trio of Festus Safari, Brunson Madigu and Philemon Olango are part of a group of five players on 9 tries apiece. Mwamba’s Ronnie Omondi and Menengai Oilers Austin Sikutwa round off the quintet.

  KCB’s Levi Amunga leads the point-scoring charts, having amassed a total of 73 points coming off 5 tries and 24 conversions.

  He is followed by Homeboyz youngster Amon Wamalwa who is on 60 points, having scored 8 tries and 10 conversions.

  Festus Safari (Strathmore Leos, 57 points), Jacob Ojee (KCB, 55 points) and Strathmore’s Brunson Madigu (53 points) round off the top five.

  The National Sevens Circuit resumes this weekend after two-week break with round three action at the Driftwood 7s at the Mombasa Sports Club.
