KOBS' formidable run continued yesterday as they made easy work of Kenyan side Harlequins, beating them convincingly 22-5 to win the 2006 Hima Mak rugby 10s.
The utl Kobs capped a great year with the victory at Kyadondo but, admitted the Hima contest was tougher this year. â€œThe presence of the Kenyan teams means you cannot take anything for granted, so it was indeed a tougher tournament than last year,â€ Kobs captain Timothy Mudoola said.
â€œBut the players had the right attitude, they clearly wanted to win, and itâ€™s the sweeter for that because we can achieve a sweep of all the trophies this year.â€ Kobâ€™s Simon Wakabi was top try scorer with 52 points, while James Gichuru from Impis was named the MVP.
In the Plate, MTN Heathens took out revenge on the Hima Impis, crushing them 19-0, while Impis II salvaged something for the hosts by beating MUBS Bruins 20-5 to lift the Bowl.
Kobs reached the final after seeing off Nairobi Universityâ€™s Mean Machine 12-7 in the quarters. Pirates drew 0-0 with MTN Heathens, who had to win a toss of a coin to advance to the semis.
The Hima 10s are traditionally the last item on the rugby calendar, but with this yearâ€™s World Cup qualifiers, the Sevens Circuit has two legs left.
