Early life

Auma Grace was born in Jinja where she spent much of her childhood – her stay in Jinja was a major factor in what led her to join rugby. This is where she crossed paths with the Walukuba Titans and hasn’t looked back ever since.

 

Rugby journey

Grace started her involvement in the sport with tag rugby which is an essential part of the game, mainly played at tender ages to harness the basic rugby skills for the future. From there, she joined the Walukuba Titans club where she had her first taste of contact and competitive rugby.

In action for the Walukuba Titans

The journey wasn’t a smooth one but due to her perseverance and hard work, she was able to impress rugby coaches, selectors and fans alike. As hard work normally goes, the benefits start to come in due time ; she transferred to the Black Pearls who have been hugely dominant in the women’s game in recent times and earned a national team call up in 2015, she got her debut in the same year.

I study at Makerere University Business school pursuing a diploma in Business Administration and I also partake in singing in a worship team.

Favorite rugby moment

“When we made it to the Rugby Africa final in Botswana in 2018.  It was a very great moment for me.”


Worst rugby moment

“when I had just started contact rugby, every time we would travel to Kampala for a rugby tournament, I would get punished by Christine Kizito’s handoffs and it wasn’t enjoyable.

Hard work pays

  1. I would do nothing to her because she was so little ,I would not give a hit because I wouldn’t like to see her taken off the pitch crying because she was the most aggressive girl with attitude on pitch
    She used to play with passion and love but with a hard heart with good tackles especially when it came to me when I had the ball she new she will not put me down but she had the speed to reduce the impact
    Love you Auma ,all the best in your carrier
    my hands off made you grow more stronger and stronger
