Fresh from his debut season at the 2018/19 HSBC World Sevens Series, Kenya 7s forward Vincent Onyala made his acquired experience on the global stretch count for his club KCB as he led the Bankers to the Kakamega 7s title while taking home all three individual awards on offer; Top try scorer, best point scorer and the Most Valuable Player.

Onyala was simply outstanding as he landed 11 tries to top score with 55 points. Ultimately, his show across the two days at the Bull Ring, that saw KCB outwit a tough Homeboyz 22-12 to win the main Cup on Sunday 21 July 2019, handed him the MVP award.

In the ended World Sevens Series season, Onyala top scored for Kenya with 22 tries and was second best on points behind Daniel Taabu of Mamba with 122.

With 62 tackles he was second best for Kenya behind his new club mate Johnstone Olindi who crossed over from Homeboyz prior to the Stanbic 7s National Circuit.

Onyala was introduced to the World Sevens Series during the second leg in Cape Town 7s by coach Paul Murunga as a replacement for Jeff Oluoch.
