Kenya’s Chipu picked their first win at the ongoing World Junior trophy by edging out host Brazil 26-24 on Sunday morning.
A last gasp penalty kick by fly half Dominic Coulson was all the Chipus needed to crown a good work with a win.
Brazil had come from 17 points down to lead Kenya U20 23-24 but Culson gave the young Simbas a last laugh.
Dominic Coulson’s points and Geoffrey Okwach’s try saw Kenya lead 13-10 at the interval before taking a 23-10 within seven minutes in the second half.
Brazil however fought back to score on the right wing and in between the posts to go 23-24 up before Coulson slotted in the three pointer.
Kenya now has one win from the competition while Brazil remains winless. On Wednesday, they lost 11-63 to Uruguay.
Other matches on matchday 2 saw Portugal beat Canada 49-21, Japan beat Uruguay 46-31 and Tonga dismiss Hong Kong 64-12.
