A brace of tries from Humphrey Kayange and Collins Injera guided Mwamba RFC to their third successive triumph on Western Union National Sevens Circuit, a 28-14 win over Kenya Harlequin FC in the George Mwangi Kabeberi Memorial Sevens main cup final.

Mwamba retained possession from kick off, dominating the early exchanges. Injera touched down early on with Lavin Asego converting for a 7-0 lead. They would continue to keep possession but had to contend with dogged resistance from Quins. Kayange would soon take out Patrice Agunda, offloading to younger brother Injera who scored under the posts.Asego was sure with this conversion,giving Mwamba a 14-0.

Quins started edging back into the game, making their way into Mwamba territory. Victor Sudi touched down with Sidney Ashioya converting for 14-7 scoreline heading into the breather.

Second half saw Kayange score the first of his two tries with Asego converting, 21-7 to Mwamba. This spurred Quins onto the offensive, pinning back Mwamba and were rewarded with an Ashioya touch down. His conversion made this game a seven pointer, 21-14 to the black shirts and all to play for.

Asego retrieved the ensuing Quins kick off, dancing his way past two defenders before offloading to Kayange who cantered 60 meters to score under the posts. Kevin Wambua's conversion making the scores 28-14. A late Quins rally was not enough and the final whistle soon went, cementing Mwamba's position at the top of the log with 118 points heading into next weekend's Driftwood Sevens in Mombasa.
