Bungoma Wazalendo rugby club had a field’s day, when they took to the field for the first time at the Senator Wetangula’s stadium in Nalondo.
Austin Aunyasi on debut and playing in his first rugby match ever, was impressive and did well to make acouple of tackles as well as some good carries.
Glen Mwangi was on target twice, in both occasions outpacing his opponents to land two tries under the post.
Heavy forwards Mike Mare, Rino Nabutola and Kenya Simbas uncapped front row James Wens Wanjala, showed extreme strength dragging atleast three opponents with them per carry.
In Wazalendo’s second match the full force of their scrum, came to effect as they pushed Nalondo’s scrum over ten metres with every scrum.
With the second game tied at two tries apiece, there came a special moment James Wens, younger brother to Wazalendo’s founder Peter J, committed two opponents and released his older brother for the match winning try. Peter J true to his nature, initiated the Wazalendo dance and hallad at himself with the one finger Wazalendo salute, Ken Obel joined in the celebration.
Their third match against Webuye 10s defending champions, Bukembe ended in a 5-5 draw. Bungoma drawing first blood with a well worked try down the left wing landed by James Wens. Bukembe managing to equalise late in the second half.
Young Jimmy and Samson both on debut , showed that the future of Wazalendo is in good hands.
Discent Ekisa was arguably wazalendo’s most valuable player, showing great determination in attack and defence.
May Wazalendo, The Lord’s team always be blessed.
