Uganda’s national women Rugby team, the Lady Rugby Cranes, thrashed Zimbabwe 41-00 in their opening game of the Rugby Africa Cup at Kyadondo.
Emily and Peace Lekuru both scored two tries each while Grace Auma, Asha Nakityo and Samiya Ayikoru added one each.
This was the Lady Rugby Cranes’ first match since 2019 but there was no form of rustiness for Leo Lubambula’s side who left unscathed in a one-sided affair.
Winnie Atyang was named the best player after taunting the Lady Sables.
With two teams in this Rugby Africa Pool C, Uganda and Zimbabwe will meet again on Saturday at Kyadondo.
The winner over two legs will progress to the next round of the competition, which serves as a World Cup qualifier.
