As expected, Uganda has beaten Zambia in the Cup Quarterfinals on Day Two of the Paramount Garments Rugby Africa Men’s 7s 2023.
It was an inspiring 29-15 victory as Uganda bounced back from a challenging Day One.
A brace from Nobert Okeny plus tries from Pius Ogena and Adrian Kasito returned Uganda to winning ways after what coach Tolbert Onyango described as a tough night.
Day one in summary
“It was a tough time after the game, at the hotel in the night, waking up in the morning (to) just think about what we went through last night and what we need to do to get over Zambia in the next game,” Onyango said.
According to Onyango, Uganda has not yet played the perfect match in his eyes. Fortunately or unfortunately, the mountain does not get a steeper to climb as their next opponent is South Africa. It is an opportunity for the players to play the best rugby of their lives in a perfect match that could give Uganda a shot at Olympic qualification.
Uganda will play against South Africa in the Cup Semifinal at 2.33 p.m. EAT.
