A try by Ronald Tumusiime and two penalties by Conrad Wanyama handed Black Pirates an 11-6 win over hosts Buffaloes at Kyadondo Rugby Club on Friday.

Robert Masendi gave the hosts a 3-0 lead courtesy of a drop goal but Pirates replied with a try by Tumusiime to set a 5-3 half time score in favour of the visitors.

In the second half Conrad Wanyama added two penalties for Pirates while Kevin Keremundu managed a penalty for Buffaloes to set up Pirates’ win.

Buffaloes coach Tolbert Onyango attributed the defeat to lack of game management and execution because according to statistics his side was much better.

“Yes we dominated but failed to execute and I think that is the area we have to work on,” Onyango stated.

The tightly contested fixture saw referee Charles Onenchan dish out two yellow cards for the Pirates.

Pirates tactician Anthony Kinene noted line outs as the area his side has to improve on ahead of their next game against Makerere Impis next Saturday at Legends.
