Kenya Simbas fall to Germany in Repechage final clash

Kenya Simbas ended their Repechage campaign without a win following a 43-6 loss to Germany in the last match played at Stade Delort, Marseille.
The Germans went to the break leading 12-6. Kenya Simbas were the first on the scoresheet after Sammy Oliech drilled in a penalty. Their opponents responded via a converted try by Hooker Kurt Haupt.
Simbas attempt to cut the gap to a point was thwarted after Oliech’s kick bounced off the post. His third attempt was a success and the side was just a point away.

Germany widened the gap again after a rolling maul that saw  Sebastian Ferreira dot their second try of the match just before halftime.
Just like the previous two matches, Kenya Simbas let in more points in the final half.  Jaco Otto got his name on the scoresheet as they added two tries to lead 26-6.
Two more tries by Sebastian Ferreira saw him bag a hattrick in the match as the side went 38-6 up. Harris Aounallah scored the final try as they crossed the 40 points mark.
