Kenya fifteens saw off neighbors Uganda 45-24 in the second leg of the Elgon cup at the RFUEA to win the title.

The Uganda Rugby Cranes came into the match as a much improved team compared to how they played in the first leg in Uganda.

Ronnie Mwenesi, David Ambunya, Mike Okombe, Simon Muniafu, Max Adaka and Kenya fifteens' captain Brian Nyikuli all scored tries for Kenya Simba.

Darwin Mukidza had 18 points from his boot , scoring three successful conversions and three penalty goals for the host.

Uganda's fullback, Phillip Wokorach who was man of the match, was a thorn in Kenya fifteens' flesh as he crossed over twice and scored two conversions.

Uganda's other tries were scored by David Kyewalabye and Ivan Magomu with one each.

Having won the first leg in Uganda 48-10, Kenya were crowned as this year's Elgon Cup champions with a 93-34 aggregate win over Uganda.
