THE Uganda women rugby team finished second behind hosts Tunisia in the Confederation of Africa Rugby 7s that ended Saturday.

Captain Winnie Atiang led from the front as the Rugby She-Cranes made history with a draw against experienced Tunisia in the last game of the round robin tournament.

“It is a great step for the Ugandan women game. with such skills, the future is promising. They were unlucky to miss the top position after Tunisia led with better averages,” confederation vice president Paul Sigombe stated.

Splendid performances from Charlotte Mudoola, Sauda Adiru and Asha Sonko had put Uganda to the right path in the four-nation championship.

Herbert Wafula’s side made light work of Ivory Coast thumping them 22-0 in the first game then edged a select Tunisia Universities squad 5-0.

Helen Buteme, Rachael Kakaire and Hadija Namuyanja were all in sparkling form.
