The junior men’s rugby side is into the CAR Tier 1B rugby finals that take place Saturday at Kyadondo rugby club.

Uganda faces a fast paced Madagascar side after beating a towering Senegal outfit 23-12.

Two tries by Edrine Kayima and Ivan Magomu in the first half and two penalties by the radiant scrum half set the pace for the hard hitting youthful side. The half ended 16-3 in favour of Uganda.

The second half saw a converted try for Uganda and Senegal fighting back to earn 12 points.

Madagascar earlier walloped Zambia 43-0 in an early afternoon encounter whose second half was played entirely under a heavy downpour.

Zambia and Senegal will play for the third spot while Uganda and Madagascar face off in the final on Saturday.
