Kenya Harlequin made light work of Western Bulls, building on a 28-11 half time lead to post a 57-16 win on match day 16 at the RFUEA Grounds.
It was the Bulls who fired the first salvo, going ahead when Duncan Abuyeka pounced on Brian Mokua’s grubber to touch down but Ron Musajja soon restored parity for the hosts, Kevin Keegan converting to put Quins 7-5 ahead.
Petro Misango soon extended the lead, scoring with Keegan converting but Abuyeka soon drilled home a penalty to bring Bulls to within six points of Quins, the scores 14-8 after 18 minutes.
Keegan would then deliver a perfectly weighted pass to Patrice Agunda who carried the ball 30 meters, shrugging off Abuyeka to score. Keegan would then convert for a 21-8 score but Bulls stayed in touch, drawing a penalty off Quins, Abuyeka slotting home for a 21-11 score on 26 minutes.
Quins were still at it, putting Bulls on the cosh and scoring through Herman Humwa, Keegan’s conversion giving them a 28-11 lead at the break.
Prop forward Leroy Anyembe would score a gem of a try, receiving the ball on the burst, shimmying and attacking the space and touching down after a rare sprint, Quins going 33-11 up on forty eight minutes.
Probably inspired by the legendary bulls of Khayega, the Bulls kept chugging at Quins, taking on the hosts in the forwards and getting their just reward through Frank Isutsa who scored off a rolling maul, taking the score to 33-16 on fifty seven minutes.
This fired Quins into a response, a comprehensive response for that matter, pumping in twenty four unanswered points.
Ugandan import Musajja would land his brace, scoring from the base of the scrum to put Quins 38-16 up on the hour mark before Dennis Muhanji pounced on Eden Agero’s raised ball, safely tucking it in his ball carrying arm and racing clear to touch down three minutes later, Brian Wandera converting for a 45-16 score.
Joash Odhalo, a second half replacement for Keegan, scored what is probably the most fortuitous try of his life, pouncing on the bounce off Brian Watson’s hurried and pressured delivery to place his body on the ball and score for a 50-16 score.
Bulls would moments later lose possession deep in Quins territory, and with the try line in sight, Quins launching a lightning counter attack that saw Wandera score and convert his own try for the 57-16 full time result.
