Rugby Uganda: Buffaloes, Entebbe Ladies claim Kitaka 7s crown

At the end of a two day 7s cirucit, mostly under floodlights and biting cold, Kyadondo based Toyota Buffaloes and Entebbe Ladies reigned supreme ahead of the others to claim the title honors.

Entebbe ladies dealt with all their adversaries, defeating Thunderbirds 10-00, Black Panthers 15-05 and Black Pearls 12-07 to break the dominance of the latter in the 7s category.

The Toyota Buffaloes won their second circuit of the year after defeating Black Pirates 5-0 in a very tight final. Buffaloes went ahead in the first half and were made to work hard in defense to keep the expansive Pirates out. Pirates had a late surge see them ground the ball beyond the try area after the full time hooter, causing the game to halt temporarily as the center referee made consultaions with his assistants. The Pirates effort was later waved for beyond the line and with that decision, the game and the Kitaka 7s were brought to a halt.

Kobs, who were the host club, and losing semi-finalists to Buffaloes, saved their blushes after annihilating their crossroad foes in Heathens 33-05 in a one-ended third place playoff. The Jinja Hippos stunned Shell Rimula Rhinos winning 17-10 and claimed fifth place.
