Early tries credited for Kenya Simbas win against Uganda

Kenya Simbas forward and captain of the day Davis Chenge said that scoring early in the match played a crucial role as they edged Uganda Rugby Cranes 34-16 at Legends Club in the Elgon Cup first leg. 
First half tries by Jacob Ojee, Leo Seje and Oliver Mang’eni put the result beyond doubt with Chenge further adding that it was important to start well for a side that is adapting to a new style of play under the tutelage of New Zealander Ian Snook.
“Yes, the early try helped us. We are only getting into a new style of play so it was important to start well,” Chenge is quoted by the Daily Monitor newspaper.
Other scorers for the Simbas were Elkeans Musonye and Biko Adema who went over the chalk deep into the second half as Asuman Mugerwa found a consolation for the hosts.
The second leg that doubles as an Africa Gold Cup fixture is scheduled for 7 July in Nairobi with Kenya out to finish the job by wrapping up an 11th Elgon Cup gong.
