Best Rugby Memories:
  • Theo Osogo cutting through RVA forward pack and scoring two tries; score 36 -15?? (1993).
  • John Amunga's brillance as fly-half
  • Dennis Keya being the first 'junior' playing for Patch Machine 'A' in 1993 and scoring the opening try against Hillcrest playing at the a provisional tournament at Maseno; however we got disqualified and reinstated and lost to Nakuru High? (1995)
  • Loaf-matches as a 2nd former and beating the 4th formers....sweetest victory
  • Scoring my first try for Patch Machine 'B' against Rosslyn academy
  • Watching Patch Machine 'A' beat Saints 'B' in the Damu Pevu Finals, the year we were relegated to Damu Pevu.

    Other Memories:
  • 'Undertaker' catching up with me for not giving him a noise-makers list after 4weeks ....... Naivasha toilets benefitted from my hard-labour
  • 'Buff' dealing with people supersonically
  • 'Boon' terrorising the sh*t out of us
  • Loaf-eating comps.....once saw a guy fold and stuff a whole loaf, but couldn't keep it in, he chucked it and it Unfolded back to its original shape, that was the funniest thing I saw.

    Since leaving the School
  • Went to Saints for IB, was a alot of fun!!
  • Now working for a construction firm in Australia, hope to start a business venture in the next few years with another Patcherian.
