Rugby Uganda: Floodlights 7s at Kyadondo to crown it all

From all the way back in June, the Guinness sponsored National 7s season comes to a climax this week as Kyadondo Rugby Grounds hosts the Floodlights 7s tournament.

Black Pirates have a healthy 16-point lead on the overall log, ranking with 136 and closely touted by Kitaka 7s winners, Toyota Buffaloes, with 120 points. The Pirates have won 3 circuits so far i.e. at Hima Cement Heathens, at Jinja Hippos and Shell Rimula Rhinos (Coronation 7s. The Buffaloes on the other hand have won two legs i.e at Black Pirates (Rujumba Memorial 7s) and at Betway Kobs (Kitaka Memorial 7s). Pirates only have to make it through their group of 3 to be confirmed overall winners.
