Rugby-Lady Cranes’ World Cup dream ends in nightmare

Rugby-Lady Cranes’ World Cup dream ends in nightmare

Lady Cranes must wait at least until New Zealand 2017 to make a
return to the Rugby World Cup 7s after failing to qualify for next
year’s edition. A 17-5 semifinal loss to Tunisia in Rabat, Morocco
prevented Uganda from challenging for a place to join South Africa in
Moscow as the second African representative.











Uganda needed to win the two-day tournament to join
South Africa, who got an automatic ticket to the World Cup. Coach
Anthony Kinene’s side had easily made it through the opening day on
Saturday, beating Zimbabwe 14-5 and Senegal 20-0 to top their pool.



Day two proved much harder as Tunisia got revenge
for losing to Uganda at the same stage during the qualifiers of the 2009
edition in Dubai held here in late 2008.



Prossy Nakakande, one of six survivors from the
team that made the trip to the Middle East three years ago, got the only
try in the semifinal. Tunisia beat Kenya 14-10 in the final to secure
the World Cup ticket.



Meanwhile, there weren’t any shocks in the Nile
Special Uganda Cup as two-time defending champions DMark Kobs, rivals
MTN Heathens and G4S Piartes easily progressed to the semifinals. The
Kobs backline tore Toyota Buffaloes apart 39-7 at Legends Rugby Club –
also known as Kampala ground.



The seven tries were shared by centre and
vice-captain Andrew Barasa (2), Richard Lumu (2) Justin Kimono, Edmond
Tumusiime and Simon Wakabi.

Pirates routed newly-promoted Summerkamp 51-5 in the late
game with three tries from Kenyan national team eighth man Lawrence
Buyachi.



Heathens beat Makerere Impis 37-6 despite suspensions and injuries whereas Sadolin Mongers overcame Rhino 19-13 in Entebbe.
