Match report

South Africa followed up their 56-12 win in the first game with Kenya with a resounding 82-2 triumph at the Grizzlies Stadium in Pretoria, in the second men’s senior international encounter. Centre Duane Bloem and fullback James Campbell each posted hat tricks for the Rhinos who ran in 14 tries in total, Hendrik Mulder finishing with a 30-point haul.

SARL president, Dr Frans Erasmus, commented: “After a five-year hiatus from playing on South African turf, the Rhinos returned with an extraordinary display of skill, determination, and sportsmanship. The matches were a testament to the hard work and dedication of the entire team. The Rhinos' victories underline the growth and development of rugby league in South Africa.

He added: “We are thrilled to have hosted the Kenyan Eagles for this historic series. I would like to extend my sincere thanks to John Mbai and his team for their sportsmanship and dedication on the field.”

Kenya were not helped by two players going off with concussion, but they trailed 36-0 at the break. Head coach Mbai said: “The Second Test didn't go according to plan but nonetheless the objective of playing against SA was achieved, it gave us a benchmark.

“The boys, and the federation as a whole, got much needed international exposure and in the coming weeks as we do a review of the whole the tour, we will put in place recommendations to improve our entire domestic and international programme.”
