Uganda: Zambians Pose Threat for Ugandan Rugby

Kampala — ZAMBIA are bottom of the the CAR Africa Cup Group B but Uganda is not taking them lightly. Uganda Rugby Cranes team manager Henry Musoke pointed out that inspite of the 20-19 win over highly-rated Namibia in Kampala, his team will not be complacent when they travel to Lusaka this week.

Musoke warned that Zambia, who lost 80-3 to Namibia in Windhoek, are capable of stepping up their game at home.

"We are taking the match against Zambia very seriously. We are going to be very careful because we want to get a result in Zambia and qualify for the semi-finals," Musoke told the press at Kampala Rugby Club yesterday.

The semi-finals this year will not be played on a home-and-away format, and Uganda has put in its bid to host the last-four event. The Guinness-sponsored team departs for Lusaka on Friday.

Meanwhile, Guinness extended its rugby sponsorship to the Uganda Cup that has been re-named Guinness Cup this season.
