Kobs have already found their way to the top of the table in the national sevens championship.
A 12-7 win over Buffaloes on Saturday ensured the Legends side started the season in spectacular fashion and that, according to Kobs’ sevens captain Joseph Aredo, is the sort of performance that will help them defend the title.
“It was important that we win the first circuit and we are glad we did,” Aredo told Kawowo Sports after the win.
Aredo and Edgar Seruwagi scored for Kobs to come from a 7-0 deficit and win the final against home side Buffaloes.
Eric Kasiita had crossed the white line to give Buffaloes a 7-0 lead early in the game.
“Of course we want to defend the title,” the Kobs full back added.
Kobs, who have had adequate preparations while the Rugby Cranes featured in the Africa Gold Cup, looked fresher than most of the sides at the tournament.
Adrian Kasiito, Ramathan Govule, Joseph Aredo and James Ijongat displayed glimpses of brilliance on the day while Timothy Mudoola rolled back the years.
Buffaloes defeated Heathens in the semifinals while Kobs defeated Pirates enroute to the final.
The six-week event is set to cover more ground this year with Gulu set to host one of the circuits.
The sevens event moves to Jinja this weekend with the Jinja Hippos playing host to the rest of the teams.
The Graveyard, Makerere and Gulu will host one circuit each while Legends, home to Pirates and Kobs, will host two events.
