Safari 7s : Bread crumbs for Uganda

It will be a tournament to forget for many, as Uganda’s two teams finished 11th and 12th out of 12 teams at the recently concluded Safari 7s in Nairobi.

Uganda A played the emerging Ugandan side in the 11th place playoff, and won 22-15 to end Uganda’s journey at the festival Safari 7s.

Day 2 of the Safari 7s was one to forget as both sides failed to register a win, collecting six losses in total. The senior side lost 19-12 to Kenya’s second side Morans, 24-10 to Stanbic Bank National Sevens Series 2018 winners Homeboyz and 24-19 to Portugal. The emerging side lost their series opener 24-19 to HSBC regulars Spain, 30-07 to star studded Samurai and 29-10 to the Red Wailers.

That array of results meant the two sides would participate in the semi finals of 9th placements on Day 3. It did not get any better here as Apache beat the emerging Cranes 19-00, while Stanbic Mwamba beat the senior Cranes side 10-05 condemning both sides to the 11th place final. The senior Ugandan side out their juniors to the sword winning 22-15 for the only Ugandan inspired win at the Safari 7s.

“Kenya is an opportunity for any of you to become a regular National Sevens players. Be consistent and solid. The reason why we still have Desire(Ayera) and Massa(Isaac) is because they seized their opportunities and have been to  global/continental stages already. With the Olympics coming up, you could be a starter,” said Coach Tolbert to his charges.
