Kulabu surge on with big victories over Nondies

Mwamba RFC ran in five unanswered tries as they demolished a hapless Nondescript RFC 33-0 in a Kenya Cup match played at Nairobi Railway Club on Saturday afternoon.

The impressive Humprey Kayange opened the scoring after five minutes with his 12th try of the season. Scrum half George Mutuku’s conversion was successful for a 7-0 lead. Greg Odhiambo crossed the whitewash after good footwork and explosive pace. Mutuku missed the kick.

Left wing Alex Aturo then sneaked on the blind to score the third try with Mutuku adding the extras for a 19-0 halftime lead.

Nondies came out stronger in the second stanza making good foray into Kulabu’s territory but the Blak Shirts defence was rock solid. Their attacks fizzled out as Mwamba’s line speed was making sure that the White Shirts didn’t move the ball wide.

Mwamba had to wait for the fourth try a little longer. And it came in an interesting way. Kayange would ghost in Nondies attack line and steal an intercept. He dashed under the post and waited for Jonah Mbari. The young front row getting his  first for the club and the season.

There was time for one more try as Lavin Asego launched another counter attack and the ball moved quickly before finding Aturo on the wing. He brushed aside two tackles before breezing into the try box and landing under the posts. Asego added the two points for a 33-0 final score.

Mwamba now shift focus onto Stratmore Leos in the penultimate match as they chase the elusive play off berth.

In Eric Shirley Shield, Brian Kivasia scored a hat trick as Mwamba II dismissed Nondies II 45-17.  Other scorers of the afternoon include Daniel Taabu, Ken Okwado and John Oliale.
