Kenya beat Madagascar 31-14 to inch closer to the top tier of African Confederation of Rugby in Harare on Wednesday. Kenya began the match strongly and took the lead barely six minute into the match when fullback Sam Motari touched down after sustained pressure.

Motari kicked over the conversion for a 7-0 lead. Kenya were ruled up front, dominating at the breakdown and collisions, and it came as no surprise when flanker Dan Sikwata barged over the line for an unconverted try to widen the lead to 12-0. Centre and skipper Augustine Lugonzo then burst through the Madagascar defence to touch down at the corner for an unconverted try to extend Kenya’s advantage to 17-0 at the interval.

On resumption, Kenya continued with the onslaught and Ian Lisangari sliced open the Malagasy defence to touch down with Motari kicking over the conversion for 24-0. Madagascar then bounced back in the next ten minutes with Seletu Mboazafy scoring two tries in a span of six minutes. Julius Rafalimaman kicked over the conversion for 24-14. Ian Tagi scored Kenya’s fifth try with Motari kicking over the conversion to close out the match.
