Royalty awaits rugby in the penultimate round

Last weekend in Fort Portal, Western Region, the Uganda Men’s Sevens met with King Oyo of Tooro and presented to him the bowl won during the Rugby World Cup Sevens 2022 in Cape Town, South Africa. Only three members of that squad played the Tooro Sevens circuit, which was won by Kobs Rugby Club.

This weekend, five more are expected to join in on the action during the penultimate round of the Nile Special Rugby Sevens Series. It will be held in another youthful king’s land in the Eastern Region town of Bugembe. Kyabazinga Nadiope IV, after whom the round and the venue are named, is expected to grace rugby with his presence this weekend.

Pools for Kyabazinga Sevens (invitational teams*):

Four of the sixteen participating teams are based within the kingdom and will be playing in front of their home crowds at the Kyabazinga Bugembe Stadium from September 24-25.
