Kenya Simbas have vowed to revenge their 30-29 loss to Germany against Uganda in the 2017 Elgon Cup.

The home side lost the international test match at Nairobi’s RFUEA Grounds and focus has now shifted to the Elgon Cup first-leg in Kampala, June 10.

Kenya 15s head coach Jerome Paarwater believes facing Uganda will wash away their tears in a bid to make the Japan 2019 World Cup.

“It’s a learning curve; though it is disappointing to lose at home for the first time for me, I think we had some good moments and looking that we had very many new boys in the team, I was happy with what I saw,” Paarwater told Capital Sport.

“We now know what to do ahead of the next match against Uganda.”

Kenya dominated last year’s Elgon Cup defeating Rugby Cranes Rugby Cranes 45-24 in Nairobi.

Simbas dethroned Uganda as the Elgon Cup champions with an aggregate score: Kenya 93-34 Uganda.
