Kenya Cup Week 2 Match Review and Results “Match Day 2”

Homeboyz Rfc vs Mwamba Rfc

In a Match that started with an early unlucky 2nd minute injury to Brian Otieno who Captained Kulabu on their match day 1 win over Western Bulls. This lead to an early introduction of Brian Wanyanja.

Mwamba started with good phase play tracking homeboyz back with good hands and ball caries, homeboyz didn’t disappoint on defense and territory kicks.

The First notable action was Greg Odhiambo’s 50metres break but was not able to get past the 5m line. Homeboyz got their first chance to go ahead through a penalty but the kick went wide and a quick punishment by mwamba RFC saw them go ahead by 5points through Dan Sikuta’s try off a well worked maul.

Homeboyz missed all their 1st half penalties with Shaban Ahmed’s drop goal attempt going wide. 1st yellow card was shown to a Homeboyz player after a late dangerous tackle to the Mwamba’s flyhalf.

Second half started with Homeboyz banging at Kulabu’s 22m and their efforts didn’t go in vein after a one man try making the scores 7-5 in favor of the DJs. Homeboyz made a clinical move which was unluckily knocked on at the 5M line. This half was defined with missed kicks by homeboyz, great territory play by mwamba’s Shaban Ahmed but poor set pieces from both teams caused by the muddy pitch. “so they say”

Another Gregory Odhiambo’s run brought life to the game creating a penalty for Kulabu and Shaban never disappointed making the score 8-7.

Now many argue that the celebration by the active players on the field made them let homeboyz come at them with a 22m phase play that gave homeboyz space to comfortably attempt a drop goal that won the game 10-7 favoring the DJ’s.
