The good, the bad and the ugly of rugby in eventful season

Kenya and South Africa compete in a line out on day one of the HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series at Stade Jean-Bouin in Paris on June 1, 2019.

The 2018/2019 season went down as one of the most interesting both in the local and international scenes.

Kenya Simbas retained the Elgon Cup but failed in their quest to recapture the Victoria Cup. However, it was a disappointing World Rugby Sevens Series campaign. Kenya Sevens were nearly relegated after senior players boycotted games.

Kenya Under-20 side Chipu took a good shot at the World Rugby Under-20 Trophy where they finished sixth after winning the Africa title.

Kenya Lionesses finished second to South Africa both in the Africa qualifiers for the 15s Rugby World Cup and Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games.

The 15s team heads to repechage for another attempt to qualify for the 2021 Rugby World Cup. The sevens team was able to qualify for the Olympic Games after the South African team withdrew.
