NAIROBI, Kenya, Feb 19- Homeboyz ladies won their second consecutive title with a 19-7 win over Impala as the second round of the Kenya Rugby Union 10-a-side festival took place on Sunday at the KCB Sports Club.

Upon resumption, the deejays controlled the game further with Linet Moraa’s brace, one of which was converted taking them 19-0 clear of the Impala ladies.
