Uganda beats 13 teams to win 2022 Africa Rugby


It was a tense morning as teams looked to qualify for the finals of the Africa Rugby Sevens in Kampala.
Holders Kenya were pushed out by Uganda playing on a soaked turf in a game that ended 22-12. The Rugby Cranes remained composed and improved game after game at the home ground beating Zimbabwe 26-0 to win the title…
Hilton Mudariki, captain of Zimbabwe’s rugby 7s team was however not happy about the turnout of events.
The Rugby 15s World Cup qualifiers will be held in France even as Kampala once again exhibits the continent’s capability of hosting the international event. Rugby Africa maintains the neutrality of the hosting country and guaranteed the attraction of more fans.
Like Zimbabwe and Kenya, Uganda has tough seasons ahead in preparing for tournaments. They have barely months to get in shape to match the likes of Fiji, Great Britain, Samoa, and New Zealand.
14 teams took part in the tournament including rising stars Burundi, Senegal and Burkina Faso drawing a promising scene and more representation of the continent at the International Rugby Board circuit.
