By Patrick Korir | Tue 20 Aug, 2019 09:36

2019 National 15s champions Kakamega High School made a statement of intent on Monday 19 August 2019 at Tanzania Game Track and Safaris (TGT) Kisongo in Arusha, Tanzania after seeing off their greatest rivals Dagoretti High 32-5 in their second game of the ongoing East Africa Regional 15s Rugby game.

Dagoretti High, whom Kakamega High beat to the National title, came to the game on the back of two straight wins; 60-0 over Uganda's Ntare School and a 32-5 win over their Kenyan counterparts Kangaru School.

Considering the opposition on show, Dagoretti High was considered the real foes for Kakamega High at the regional showpiece.

In another game played on Monday, Kangaru recovered from two straight losses from Kakamega High on day one and Dagoretti on day two to outscore St. Mary's Kisubi 30-06 for their first win.

In another games, Ntare School, just like Kangaru, picked their first win after taking down Tanzania's Okeeswa 31-0.

All three Kenyan schools will be in action as the seven-school round robin rugby 15s action continues on Tuesday.

Kakakmega, Dagoretti and Kangaru will be up against Namilyango College and St. Mary's Kisubi - all from Uganda - and Okeeswa, in that order.
