Kenya Lionesses dumped Lady Rugby Cranes to qualify for next year’s Rugby Africa Cup which serves as a qualifier for the inaugural World Women 15s WXV in 2023.

Kenya were the better side against hosts Uganda for a dominant 23-3 victory, in the Rugby Africa Women’s Cup Pool B match played at Muteesa II Stadium in Wankulukuku on Wednesday.

The Lionesses asked questions from the kick-off but Uganda failed to answer hence going into the break with Ann Goretti’s try.

Kenya’s flyhalf Grace Adhiambo’s territory kicking was superb to pin the Ugandans back each time they tried to advance before putting some points on the board off a drop goal, penalty and a conversion.

Uganda’s first visit deep into the Kenyan half resulted in a penalty that Charlotte Mudoola converted for the team’s only points of the game to light up big crowd.
