In a 7s series which has turned into a two horse abttle, Kobs lead the way with 3 wins (Mileke 7s, Buffalos 7s, Rujumba 7s) , while Pirates have just one (Buddu 7s), as we reach the half way mark of the Roke 7s series this 2019.
Pirates saw off Heathens 19-05 in the semis, for the third time this year, after William Nkore made a late full score to pocket all heathens hopes, while Norbert Okeny scored twice in the second half to see Kobs go over a stubborn Buffaloes side, winning 24-12.
The 7s calendar takes a fortnight’s break and will return with the Rhinos hosting Coronation 7s at Legends on 20th July 2019.
