Rugby East Africa: Elgon Cup return leg is on this weekend

The Gold Cup enters its fourth weekend and it is providing a saucy East African derby. It is Kenya up against Uganda in the return leg of the Elgon Cup.

Isaac Adimo, Davis Chenge and Jacob Ojee, the tormentors in chief for the Cranes in the first leg are in the first team, a side that truly means business for Kenya. Davis Chenge, Simbas’s skipper is enjoying the form of his international career as he crossed for a first half hat-trick in Kenya last weekend as Kenya beat Zimbabwe 45-36. Dalmus Chituyi returns for his third cap for the Simbas, his very first being against Uganda in 2014 while his second was last weekend, where he came on as a sub to score two tries and hand the Simbas the victory against a stubborn Zimbabwe Sables side.

Ivan Magomu who featured for the Cranes in the Elgon Cup first leg didn’t make the team to Namibia for the first Gold Cup game but have since been named in the team to travel to Kenya. Uganda was void of creativity in Windhoek but the return of Ivan Magomu, Phillip Wokorach, and Michael Wokorach will fill that void. It is still unclear what the starting XV for the cranes will look like but there is hope of a balanced and lethal lineup. Ronald Musajja and Marvin Odong return as well to reinforce the backrow and hand some help perennial back rower and Kobs skipper, Brian Asaba. Martial Tchumkam is an addition the front row will be happy with to balance the weight of the Kenyans.

The last time Uganda played away in Kenya was in particular a good outing for Phillip Wokorach, Ivan Magomu and outside center Michael Wokorach with the three combining for two try assists, and 23 points between them. The Simbas had to fight back in the dying minutes of the game to rescue a draw and save face in front of their home crowd.

There is no debutant in the Cranes squad versus three for Kenya and the Cranes will look to rally from that experience to get that win which got out  of their grip at the shore last year.
