LAWRENCE Ssebuliba’s winning tries in the semi-final against D’Mark Kobs and Buffaloes in the final of the first circuit of the KCB Rugby 7s tournament not only gave his Heathens side victory and the sh500,000 cash prize, but also earned him the MVP award and sh100,000 cash prize.

With the game tied at 17-17 with Kobs, Ssebuliba scored the winning try to hand Heathens a 22-17 semi-final win and he later added another winning try against Buffaloes in the bruising final played at Kyadondo Rugby Club on Sunday.

Philip Wokorach also scored a try and a penalty try awarded by referee Charlie Mungoma after Wokorach was tackled with the ball while Philip Pariyo and James Odongo scored Buffaloes’ tries.

“Our target is winning this year’s edition and todays win has given us confidence ahead of next weekend’s second Circuit at Makerere.”

KCB managing director Joram Kiarie while handing over the sh500,000/= cheque to Heathens, extended his gratitude to the organiser and was impressed by the abundant talents available and pledged to continue supporting rugby and make the tournament bigger year by year.

Unlike in the past when the national 7s circuit was a single day’s event, this year’s tournament is a two day event that has embraced the senior men’s teams, the U-19 boys and girls’ teams.
