Hong Kong have won the second international test against Kenya Simbas by 43-34 on Saturday, August 26, 2017 at RFUEA grounds, Nairobi.

The two teams played to a 19-19 draw in the first match a week ago.

Hong Kong ran in four tries, four conversions and five penalties against Kenya’s four converted tries and two penalties.

Matt Roslee scored the five penalties for the visitors as well as adding the three conversions with Dayne Dans, Alex Wai-Shing and Kyle Sullivan scoring the tries.

Darwin Mukidza scored all Kenya’s kicks with Samson Onsomu, Davies Chenge and Tony Onyango crossing over deep in the second half.

Kenya returns to action in November when they will head to the three-week Hong Kong Cup of Nations.

Hong Kong got things going with Roslee’s opening penalty but Kenya restored parity before Roslee sent in two more for a 9-6 lead.

The visitors crossed over just before the break through Sullivan with Roslee adding the extras for a 16-6 lead.

Roslee would open the second half with another successful penalty before he converted his side’s second try for a 26-6 lead. Kenya brought in Dennis Karani, Philip Ikambili and Oscar Simiyu for Curtis Lilako, Peter Karia and Moses Amusala.

Hong Kong landed a third try through Wai-Shing before Kenya touched down for the first time through Homeboyz winger Tony Onyango with Mukidza adding the extras.

Samson Onsomu bagged Kenya’s second to bring the score to 20-33 with Roslee managing to score another penalty for the visitors but Davies Chenge ensured Kenya remains in the game with a try just near the posts for Mukidza to have an easy conversion.

Hong Kong would, however, extend the lead to 43-27 with a converted try but Mukidza reduced the deficit again to just nine points as he converted his own try but that was enough by full-time for Hong Kong to carry the day.
