Last round attendance
4,000 in Kampala
3,500 in Bulawayo

Total official attendance after the first ten matches of the Cup is 29,100; so averagely few less than 3K per match.
Record is from Zimbabwe v Morocco and Kenya v Zimbabwe, with 5,000 spectators on the stands. The games with less crowd were the ones in Morocco: 800 against Kenya, 600 against Namibia

Final Score Kenya Simbas xvs 67 - Tunisia 0

http://ragahouse.com/news/item/11-try-k ... or-tunisia

Good game by the Simbas, the score could have reached 100 +, if the Simbas didn't have so many ball handling errors. Scrappy game by both teams.
It's now official, the Kenya Simbas will be heading to the repechege. I dont see the Simbas beating Namibia in Windhoek.

Unfortunately I also don't think the Simbas will beat the Namibians. The travel factor will get them, and not only that, but Nam had a bye this weekend.

But hey, at least this year's addition of the GC was very entertaining and super professional. Hopefully Kenya can surprise the world in November.

It's not even about the travel factor, Namibia play a very clinical game. The Simbas today had so many errors, in a match they shouldn't have had any pressure at all.

When I joined in MOR were down 5 or 7 to 32

They staged a rally and went as close as 29-32 if I'm not mistaken
In all they scored 4t 3c p

Then Uganda scored two late tries via fast backs
but have they reached 7t? - don't know, probably NOT

Ambaka joined the Simbas camp two weeks before the Tunisia game, Amonde a week later, though Amonde did not play today.... Surprised they approached the Simbas coach to inform him of their interest to join after the gruelling sevens season. Hopefully they will be available for the repechage.

Agree. In the parts of the match I've seen Kenya made several knocks-on, often unforced. They can't hope to compete with T2 teams if they make so many mistakes

Meanwhile, ugandan Wokorach overcame namibian Loubser at the head of the scorers chart. And he gifted a try to one his companion last week. Next saturday he could laureate best scorer of the tournament, even if maybe there's not an official chart

ACTUALLY: NOBODY knows :!:

but there are two NAIVE | UNRELIABLE assumptions:

https://www.worldrugby.org/news/354358
Kenya know victory over Namibia in Windhoek next Saturday will secure their place at Japan 2019
rather than entering the global repechage in November


http://www.rugbyafrique.com/gold-cup/
The winner will be established according to the ranking at the end of the competition
according to the results of the matches, the number of points and other criteria.


This is the BEAUTY of RUGBY not knowing what you need to advance going into the battle :!:

Is this legal? Sorry for my ignorance but someone said me in a recent past that dummy passes are not permitted from the scrum

Thank you. Maybe the referee considered the ball already out of the scrum, if the #8 took it in his hands

SINCE 1992 = already 26 years

Scrum-half attempting to make an opponent believe
the ball is out of the scrum when it is not.


There was no dummy pass, just a dummy run
