Kobs conquer Kings Park to win Rujumba 7s

Kobs beat Black Pirates 15-14 in an end to end nail-bitter of a final to win Rujumba 7s at a filled-to-capacity Kings Park Arena on Saturday evening and take a series win of 2 against 1.

Kobs scored three unconverted tries on the road to the win while Pirates scored two tries, with William Nkore converting both.

Isaac Karugaba Rujumba opened the scoring in the finale after he sailed easily through Kobs defense. Kobs replied in more than kind after Pius Ogena earned a turnover down on the left, and a quick start setup Norbert Okeny to race til the tryline to score Kobs first try of the game. Edgar Seruwagi did not get the extras right but Kobs were soon on the prowl again and a well timed kick-and-chase fell beautifully for Al Hajj Manano to score Kobs second and give the Blue Army a 10-07 half time lead.

The pressure keptc oming from the sea robbers in the second half, and they were soon over through Desire Ayera, with William Nkore making no mistake wit the extras to give Pirates a 14-10 lead. With time running out on the clock, one last Hail Mary from Kobs yielded dividends when Norbert Okeny raced to the try-line to score what would be the winning score for the Kobs side.

“We knew why we came here and set out to do nothing else but to win,” said Kobs captain Edgar Seruwagi.

“It was a tough start, but  am glad we saw it through and won.”

The Kobs win at Rujumba 7s means Kobs go in the lead 2-1 in the ping-pong being played by both Pirates and Kobs of finals wins.

  1. “One thing is that if you are searching for a student loan you may find that you will need a cosigner. There are many cases where this is true because you could find that you do not have a past credit score so the financial institution will require that you’ve someone cosign the loan for you. Good post.”
