NAIROBI, Kenya, Apr 7 – The national Under-20 Rugby team defied all the odds to stun Namibia 21-18 at a tight contest hosted at Nairobi’s KCB Lion’s Den to lift a first ever Barthes Cup and earn a ticket to represent Kenya at the 2019 World Rugby U20 Trophy in Brazil.

The Paul Odera coached side famously known as the Chipu, finally found a formula to down Namibia who have cut short their dreams of returning to the world junior competition for the first time since 2009, having lost the last three finals to Namibia, with all the matches hosted in Windhoek.

The last time Kenya qualified for the World Trophy was a decade ago when they hosted the competition.
