Black Pirates began their new year with an emphatic 65-05 bonus point victory over Makerere Impis on Saturday at Kings Park Stadium, Bweyogerere.
The hosts had a slow start in the first half that ended 15-00 courtesy of tries from forwards Frank Kidega and Kelvin Balagadde plus Conrad Wanyama’s extras off the boot. The Pirates forwards controlled much of the proceedings with strong carries and set pieces which they dominated easily.
The visitors were strong in defense despite not having many chances to attack with ball in hand.
However, the Sea Robbers were not to be denied in the second half by the newly promoted University side. Pirates were too good for Impis and ran riot by scoring 8 tries past their opponents.
