The Africa Cup silver medalists suffered a 10-00 defeat against Jamaica in their first Pool B match on Saturday, February 22, 2020.

Oshane Edie scored a brace, with each try coming in either half of the match as Jamaica showed superior strength and pace compared to their opponents.

Uganda thus has an even more difficult task to achieve and must win the remaining matches if they’re to be guaranteed of a place in the main cup quarter-finals.

POOL B FIXTURES:

  • 9:57 pm: Uganda v Brazil
  • 1:45 am: Hong Kong v Uganda
