Today at Kyadondo
TWO Kenyan teams and one from Rwanda will take part in what has become Ugandaâ€™s only international rugby tournament. The Hima 10-a-side tournament, which has been traditionally played at Makerere, will this time take place at the Kyadondo RFC grounds on Saturday and Sunday.
Nairobi Universityâ€™s Mean Machine, a regular visitor to the tournament, will be joined by Nakuru and Rwanda in what will be the closing event of the 2005 rugby season.
Machine is grouped with last yearâ€™s winner Heathens in Group A, which also has last weekendâ€™s Sevens round winners Celtel Pirates and KIU.
Rwanda is in Group B, together with hosts Hima Impis, Buffaloes, and Entebbe Mongers. LG Rhinos are in Group C with Boks, Rams, and new boys on the block Bruins from MUBS. Nakuru, which also hosts a 10s tournament every year, will battle it out in the preliminaries with seven-time League champions Mango Kobs, Impis II, and Sailors.
