Uganda 33 – 05 Brazil
Uganda 36 – 10 Jamaica
Uganda Rugby Sevens team has made a strong start in the World Challenger Sevens Rugby Series, winning their first two games against Brazil and Jamaica in Stellenbosch, South Africa.
They currently sit at the top of Pool C, and have secured a spot in the next stage of the tournament with one final pool game against Korea left to play.
In the opening match against Brazil, Uganda dominated from start to finish, scoring five tries and only conceding one.
Tries by Aaron Ofoywroth, Nobert Okeny, and Adrian Kasito, together with a penalty try saw the cranes cruise past Brazil in their first game of the campaign, winning it 33-05.
The second game against Jamaica turned out a little tighter, with the team having to work through a much determined Jamaica side that started off strong and scored first.
With two tries from Adrian Kasito, two from Nobert Okeny and two from Timothy Kisiga, Uganda had to work a five points deficit to finally secure a 36-10 victory.
The team’s performance in the tournament so far has been impressive, and they will be hoping to carry this momentum into their final pool game against Korea.
As it is, the Rugby Cranes have secured a spot in the knockout stages of the competition.
They now prepare for their final pool game against Korea, and will be working towards coming off as pool leaders. The game will be played tomorrow 21st April, at 11. 38 am EAT.
