Michael Wanjala converted Davies Chenge’s try early in the first half but Quins cancelled it to level 7-7 at the interval.

Quins took a 7-10 lead through Lyle Asiligwa’s try but the 2017 and 2018 champions fought back to go 14-10 up through Samuel Asati’s try that was converted by Ahmed Shaban.

Shaban would boot three more points before Jacob Ojee put the game out of Quins’ reach with a five-pointer converted by Isaac Njoroge.
