Kenya Sevens team Shujaa started the second day of the final leg of the Rugby Africa Solidarity Sevens friendly tournament on a high note after thrashing Uganda 31-7 in match played at Markötter Stadium in Stellenbosch on Sunday.

Billy Odhiambo scored a brace as Herman Humwa, Daniel Taabu and Bush Mwale’s tries saw Kenya register their third win out of the four matches played so far in South Africa.

Kenya took an early 5-0 lead after a missed conversion in the opening minutes of the match after Odhiambo touchdown in the left corner from a quick restart by Humwa after overturning possession on a Ugandan attack.

Odhiambo soon made it 12-0 after Tony Omondi’s conversion. Collins Injera’s clever pass of the rack found an unmarked Odhiambo who raced to the try line to dot Kenya’s second try of the match.

Shujaa will soon after run away with the game after Herman Humwa touched down between the post for a 19-0 lead after Omondi’s conversion.

Uganda would grab a late try after the hooter after Nobert Okeny raced past the Kenyan defense to land their only try of the match before Tim Kisiga added the conversion as Shujaa went to the break leading 19-7.

In the final half, Daniel Taabu and Bush Mwale sealed the win with two more tries as Kenya won comfortably with a 31-7 score.

Kenya will be back in action again against South Africa 1.
