Man of the match Wokorach leaves Simbas bedazzled

first_imgWhich one was more more mind stopping is a question of serious debate. The second one though was unbelievable. Cranes were trailing, legs were tired, fatigue had set in.He picked a ball, sidestepped once, dummied, then span – in full flight – to beat an army of Kenyan adversaries. He’s got height advantage, so he didn’t even get to the touchline; he simply stretched his arm as the last man managed to get his legs, and touched down! Incredible stuff!Against Namibia at home, he was a tale. Reports indicate they still talk about him. His first try: he kicked high up, chased and caught the ball, and sprinted to the touchline. Namibians were so awed they just looked on as he charged for a try.The second one he intercepted a pass, ‘danced’ around and bust for the touchline. It’s like Namibia had already given up on him.Wokos is a tag rugby graduate; he’s been to the UK for an invitational rugby development stint. He’s one of the most successful tag rugby trust graduates world over.His fetes are incredible; he’s already had two horrific injuries in his young career. His right femur snapped during a league game with then G4S Pirates. The second injury was in the UK during a rugby development stint with Esher Rugby Club. But not even those setbacks will stop him.Share on: WhatsApp Kenya Simbas and Rugby Cranes during a scrum Saturday evening at RFUEA grounds in Nairobi. Photo via @ntvugandaThat he was named man of the match on such a charged evening of rugby is no simple fete. In all honesty, Rugby Cranes fullback Phillip Wokorach left fans, Ugandans and Kenyans alike, bedazzled!These are things you see in NBA championships; but the lanky 24-year old displays in rugby. He is lithe, like a snake; he doesn’t just sidestep: he weaves, dances, and sprints. One of the commentators described him as “breaking tackles like knife through butter”.You wouldn’t even tell he’s broken a tackle, because it’s like he’s never challenged! It’s a wonder he’s debuted for the Cranes: he should have been here already, but for horrific injuries and long spells of recovery.Kenya beat uganda 45-24, but on the evening he made two tries; the first left the RFUEA fully packed stadium in awe, the second in disbelief!Kudos Uganda cranes for a good game. @WokorachPhillip‘s talent is undeniable. See you next time! #ElgonCup— Kenya Rugby 24/7 (@KenyaRugby247) July 30, 2016last_img
