RWC 7s: Uganda trounce Zimbabwe, to set date with Chile

After a forgettable opening 40-07 loss in the preliminary round of the Sevens rugby world cup, the Uganda Cranes have bounced back in style to beat fellow African kinsmen, Zimbabwe 24-10 to advance to the Bowl semi finals.

The back-to-back Africa 7s champions were put on the score board early in the game through the dizzying feet of Phillip Wokorach who sidestepped his way to the try line. Aaron Ofoiwroth would comfortably convert to give Uganda maximum points. Not before long, Solomon Okia started quickly for Uganda’s penalty and produced a dummy pass, sending him right through the cheetah’s defense to score Uganda’s second try. James Odong added a third to seal Uganda’s half, and send the cranes into the break with a 19-00 lead.

Zimbabwe returned from the break very energized and were rewarded with a try after Aaron Ofoiwroth failed to clear his line allowing Zimbabwe to cross over with an easy try. The Cheetahs kept on prying but Uganda’s wall wasn’t about to come down any time sooner. Phillip Wokorach released Magomu who was tackled illegally 8 meters off the try line. From the resulting penalty, James Odong blindsided the Zimbabwean defense and scored his second, and Uganda’s fourth on the day. Zimbabwe sneaked in a late try but it was too little too late.

Owing to that result, Uganda shall now face South American outfit Chile in the Bowl Semifinals at 1944HRS East African Time on Sunday to determine who proceeds to the finals. Uganda have actually met Chile this year at the Hong Kong 7s in the group stages. the African champions were 14-10 winners with tries coming from the usual suspects Phillip Wokorach and Solomon Okia.
