Inter-University Games: Rugby

(Played on a round-robin format)
  • Kyambogo 24-07 Busoga
  • Busoga 00-26 UCU
  • UCU 17-05 Kyambogo
Uganda Christian University (UCU) won all their games to clinch gold in the Rugby event at the 16th Inter-University Games being hosted by Busoga University.
The Rugby games were hosted at Walukuba play ground in Jinja town because most of the facilities at Busoga were not ready by the time of the games’ commencement.
Inspired by Uganda Rugby Cranes and Hima Heathens’ fast paced but tricky player, Phillip Wokoroach, UCU easily over came the other two opponents.
The Mukono based institution humiliated hosts Busoga by 24 points without response in the opener before getting better of Kyambogo University 17-05.

Kyambogo took second place after edging Busoga 24-07.

UCU has now won the Rugby title for three consecutive years.
