Pirates are now on course to winning their first ever national 7s crown having won against Mongers in the finale of the Coronations 7s edition of the national 7s calendar.

Pirates hadn’t won a circuit since winning in Jinja, losing the Buffaloes 7s to the 7s academy in the final, falling to Rams in the semis of the Mbarara 7s and falling to Buffaloes in the semis of Pirates 7s, an edition they hosted at Legends on 21st July.

Timothy Kisiga, Ivan Magomu and Desire Ayera who haven’t been with this Pirates team in amonth were thrown right away in the thick of things for Pirates to galvanize their system and restore their hopes in winning the national 7s crown.

Timothy Kisiga, on the back of his hat-trick against Uruguay in the rugby sevens world cup in San Francisco, was an asset in defense for Pirates stopping Eddie Kayima who was on his way to the Pirates try line. He went on their end to score for Pirates, as did Ivan Magomu as Pirates claimed yet another sevens circuit edition.
