KYADONDO rugby club is host to the inaugural Coke boys U-14 rugby tournament that starts this morning. It will be a 15 a side contest.
The one-day Coca Cola sponsored event is the first of its kind in the country after the rugby union suspended the 10-a-side version among the juveniles last month.
The six teams to feature include St. Marys College Kisubi, Kyadondo club, Spire Road PS, Jinja schools, Kampala boys and Kingâ€™s College Budo.
Rugby development manager Ramsey Olinga explained that the tournament is meant to give an opportunity to the U-14 boys that are in schools that do not feature in the schools league.
â€œWe suspended 10 a side rugby in schools and we are on a campaign to promote 15s rugby. This tournament will help in building the basics of 15s rugby in the players at an early age,â€ Olinga explained.
He also added that this tournament would absorb village and regional U-14 teams in the future. Winners will get a trophies and drinks courtesy of Coca Cola.
