NAIROBI, Kenya, Oct 20 – Skipper Jeff Oluoch led from the front literally as Kenya’s second tier team Kenya Morans will take on Waisale Serevi’s Russia Academy in the Main Cup semi-finals of the Safari Sevens at the RFUEA Grounds on Sunday afternoon.

The Morans floored French outfit Seventise 24-7 to book a slot in the last four while the Russia Academy beat Red Wailers 17-5 to also go through.

Oluoch put up a massive shift for the Morans, being at the centre of both attack and defense. He dotted down the first try of the game when he burst out on the right after Kenya won possession at kick off.

Geoffrey Okwatch drove home the second try for the Morans after a powerful ran from the halfway line to dot down under the posts, Ian Mabwa sending the conversion straight between the posts for a 12-0 lead.

Seventise had a small window into the game when a stray pass from Johnstone Olindi was intercepted, Guiborat Michel taking advantage to drive the ball over the chalk with the conversion slicing the posts for a 12-7 halftime score.

But, the Morans started the second half with pace and power, skipper Oluoch breaking away on the right after thumping away his marker and unselfishly offloaded the ball to Okwatch who dotted down under the posts, Mabwa coming clean with the comversion.

Vincent Onyala then wrapped the game up with a try under the posts after running across the pitch after a beautiful offload from Oluoch.
