Bamburi Rugby Series

Victoria v Chui 2:30pm

Rwenzori v Papa 4:30pm

UGANDAN franchise sides Rwenzori and Victoria host Kenya sides Papa and Chui respectively in the opening fixtures of the Bamburi Rugby Super Series on Saturday at Kyadondo club without national team players.

Rugby Cranes team manager Brian Tabaruka said national coaches would like to have enough time with the players for bonding as they prepare for international engagements. That is why, he said, they will not be part of the Bamburi Rugby Super Series tournament.

“The coaches want to keep the boys together for bonding and also keep them away from the risk of injuries which they could sustain in the Bamburi series,” Tabaruka said while confirming the development.

He however added that the national team coaches will use the four-week tournament to identify new players for possible inclusion in the national team.
