Uganda back in Hong Kong to hunt for Core status

From 6th April to 8th April 2018, the 7th tourney of the HSBC World Sevens series in Hong Kong, the back-to-back, reigning and defending Africa 7s champions, Uganda, will be taking part in the World Series qualifier for the 2018-2019 season.

The main competition involves 15 core teams, with the 16th to be determined, while Uganda will participate will participate in the qualifier by virtue of being best African team that is not a Core series team. Uganda will represent Africa alongside Zimbabwe.

The teams in the World Series qualifier are Uganda, Zimbabwe, Ireland, Germany, Japan, Hong Kong, Papua New Guinea, Cook Islands, Guyana, Jamaica, Uruguay and Chile.

In the qualifier competition, the twelve teams are split into 3 pools with the top two teams from each group, and two best placed third place finishers advancing to the knockouts. The ultimate winner of the knockout rounds at the final, qualifies for core status in the 2018-2019 season.

The reigning African champions have been drawn against Chile, Japan and Georgia.

Uganda was in familiar territory a year ago when they were pitted against Germany, Jamaica and Tonga in Group E. The Cranes blitzed past Tonga 24-00, won 26-05 against Jamaica but lost to Germany 24-00. They qualified for the knockouts but that didn’t last long after they lost to Papua New Guinea 10-14 in a very tight game.

This year, your African champions will aim higher and go for the ultimate prize, win the tourney and attain core status in 2018-2019. The boys have gained loads of experience and exposure on the international scene and this should come in handy as they look to put away their opposition.
