Mwamba hit half century to see off Machine

Mwamba continued their fine form with a 51-8 pummeling of Mean Machine in an early kick off of a double header at the Ruaraka grounds.

Mwamba came into the encounter as favourites and it would take them 10 minutes to put points on the board through a Daniel Taabu penalty.

Joel Igunza would then cross the white chalk at the corner five minutes later, Taabu missing to add the extras for a 8-0 lead.

Igunza would then take an intercept to produce a clean pair of heels to score his second. Taabu missed the resulting conversion leaving the scores at 13-0.

Salaton Muturi would then shove his way under the sticks with under 10 minutes remaining for a 20-0 lead.

Injera would then grab his first of the day at the whistle after a quick penalty tap. Scores heading into the blocks 25-0.

Machine came out of the blocks all guns out and they would put their first points on the table through a Festus Shiasi penalty early on bringing the scores to 25-3.

Machine would continue piling pressure on the Mwamba defence and it paid off as Valentine Odoyo crossed over for Machine’s first try, Shiasi’s conversion falling short to leave matters at 25-8.

Inzuga would grab his third after clean work from Injera who released him on the outside. Taabu adding the extras to make things 32-8. Injera would then add to his try tally after taking a quick tap, Taabu converting for a 39-8 lead.

Deus Mudaki would then muscle his way over for Mwamba’s seventh try bringing the scores to 46-8 after Taabu got the extras right.

Substitute Hussein Yaya would then score the last try of the game for Mwamba bringing the scores to 51-8.
