Kobs with the Jinja Sevens trophy

Jinja Sevens

  • Finals: Kobs 28-19 Black Pirates
  • 3rd Place Playoff: Rams 19-15 Hippos

Kobs have all but claimed the 2019 National Roke Rugby Sevens title after winning the Jinja leg on Saturday.

Kobs defeated rivals Black Pirates, 28-19, at Dam Waters in Jinja to reopen a six-point lead with just one leg remaining to end the series.

However, it was Pirates that crossed first through William Mucunguzi before Adrian Kasito quickly responded. Norbert Okeny and Pius Ogena put their names on the scoresheet as Kobs led 21-07 at the break.

On return for the second half, Pirates skipper Ivan Magomu cut the deficit to seven points but Kasito broke through to ice the game turning Magomu’s second try into consolation and in the process dethroned last year’s winners of the circuit.

The champions-elect who took their points tally to 126, six clear of Pirates, will host the last leg of the Roke 7s at Legends in two-weeks time.

A top 3 finish will see Kobs lift the national title, and going by their performance through the sevens season, it’s almost a given they will be in the finals and ultimately national champions.
