Two Kenyan representatives Kakamega High and Dagoretti High kicked of their chase for the East African Rugby 15s title at Tanzania Game Track and Safaris (TGT) Kisongo in Arusha, Tanzania on a high with resounding wins over another Kenyan side Kangaru High and Uganda's Ntare School, respectively, both games played on Saturday 17 August 2019.

Reigning Kenya National 15s champions Kakamega High hit Kangaru High 46-0 as the team they beat to the National title Dagoretti High walked over Ntare with a 60-0 scoreline.

The Barbarians of Kakamega led 26-0 at half time before sutting out their local foes with an added 19 points.

In another game played on Saturday St. Mary's Kisubi lost out 5-15 to their Ugandan counterparts Namilyango College.

Save for the six schools that participated on Saturday, one other - Okeeswa of Tanzania completes the list of of those participating in the 18th edition of Federation of East Africa Secondary Schools Sports Associations (FEASSSA).

The seven will play in a round robin manner and at the end of it all the school that tops the charts will be declared winner to take over from champions Upper Hill School who failed to return to defend their title.

Sunday will be a rest day for all schools but when the action resumes on Monday 19 August, it will be an all-Kenyan affair when Kangaru takes on Dagoretti.

The day after - Tuesday, Dagoretti will set up a mouthwatering duel with last years' East Africa 15s runners up Kakamega as Kangaru face off with St. Mary's Kisubi.
