Kabras RFC see off Sigalagala to reach Lake Victoria 15s final

Kabras RFC booked their place in the 2023 Victoria Cup final after beating Sigalagala 43-12 in a semifinal tie played at the Kakamega Showground on Saturday.

Kabras, who are the defending champions entered the game as clear favourites, and they only took a minute to enter the scoreboard, David Bunduki charging down Sigalagala’s clearance in the 22 to score. Erick Cantona failed to add the extras as Kabras took an early 5-0 lead.

Twenty minutes and the score was 10-0 as newly signed prop Darell Ogot powerfully surged past Sigalagala’s defence to stretch Kabras’ lead. Cantona once again failed to add the extras as the score changed to 10-0.

Sigala would respond with an unconverted try of their own seven minutes later to change the scores to 10-5.

The millers, gaining momentum, would end the half on a high as speedster Dancun Shighadi used his pace for the good to score. Cantona, this time, made amends to his earlier miskicks to send the scores to 17-5 as the referee signalled for halftime.

The two sides would exchange two quick tries at the start of the second half with Cantona adding the extras for Kabras as Sigalagala once again failed to convert their try as the score changed to 24-12.

An infringement by Sigalagala at the scrum was spotted by the referee, and it was enough to stretch Kabras’ lead as he awarded a penalty try to take the scores to 31-12.

Patrick Lumumba, who came on in the second half scored two quick tries for the millers as David Williams, taking on kicking duties from Cantona converted one, while his second conversion sailed wide as the score changed to 43-12.

Kabras would hold on to win the game and book their place in the 2023 Victoria Cup finals scheduled for November 11 in Kisumu.
