Moses Amusala and Brian Okwomi celebrated their maiden test appearances for Kenya, touching down as their side showed great character in overturning a 3-10 deficit, defeating Uganda 27-10 in a Victoria Cup fixture at Nairobi's RFUEA Grounds on Saturday 9 July 2011. They also won the Women's match 20-10
Early on the Kenyans lost No.8 Duncan Ekasi to concussion. His place was taken by Okwomi who thus won his first cap.
The Cranes' flyhalf Bennon Kiiza opened the scoring with a penalty goal. Vincent Mose levelled the scores at 3-3, the half-time score.
The Cranes scored the first try when they laid siege to the Kenyan line at the start of the second half and prop Brian Odong scored a try which Kiiza converted.
Then the Kenyan fightback started. The Kenyan pack went over in a bundle and the TMO was able to advise that lock Tony Mutai had scored. 10-8 and Kenya carried on attacking. Prop forward Amusala grounded the ball under the posts with Peter Abuoga, who took over the kicking duties from Mose, converting to see the hosts lead for the first time at 15-10. Okwomi grounded the ball from a five-=metre scrum. 22-10 before Nato Simiyu gave Kenya the bonus point try to seal the 27-10.
Kenya hang onto the Elgon Cup and are second in the Victoria Cup - second to Zimbabwe.
Women's Elgon Cup
Kenya made it three Elgon Cups in a row, beating Uganda's Lady Cranes 22-10 in a one off tie played at the same venue. Two tries from Anita Omondi one each from Phila Olando, Millicent Opala and conversion saw Kenya assert their dominance over their Western neighbours. The result sees the Kenyan ladies keep the Elgon Cup trophy for keeps.
