At the end of the Solidarity sevens in Stellenbosch which was a huge success, the last day’s tournament kicked off on Saturday 15th May.
Hard work and resilience finally paid off for the Zimbabwe 7s when they defeated Uganda Cranes 7s in the final match on Friday afternoon at the Solidarity 7s.
Match day 2 was scheduled with Uganda to face Kenya in the first match before two ranking games between 3 and 4 and 1 and 2 from yesterday’s results.
The Kenyans beat Uganda 7:31 for the third time in two weeks. Nyeki managed a try and Tim Kisiga converted to give Uganda the seven points.
Uganda played its second game of the day against Zimbabwe as a ranking game to choose who comes in at third and fourth position.
They won 36-7 to cement third position in the tournament. Tries from Michael Wokorach, Solomon Okia(2), Isaac Massa, Tim Kisiga and Norbert Okeny helped Uganda to the win.
Joseph Aredo contributed with three tries. The team returns tomorrow as they prepare for the Olympics Repechage in Monaco, France in June.
