Uganda, Kenya face off in Elgon Cup

The rivalry between Uganda and Kenya will be re-awakened this Saturday as both sides meet up in the first leg of the Elgon Cup at the Legends Rugby Club. The Uganda Rugby Cranes team has been holding residential training at the Dam Waters in Jinja and new captain Asuman Mugerwa is in confident mood.

“We have improved a lot especially after the two-legged friendlies against world’s best South Africa. Players have mastered their playing partners and I promise we shall win the battle come Saturday,” Mugerwa vowed.

Uganda played two build-up matches against a South African Supa-Babas side in April and lost both even if there were many positives in the game. The second leg is due July 7 in Kenya at the RFUUEA Ground in a Rugby Africa Gold Cup fixture.
