Zimbabwe v Uganda (July 23rd in Harare)
Rugby Cranes coach Robert Sseguya is optimistic his charges will put up a good fight in the Rugby Africa tier 1A fixture against Zimbabwe next week in Harare.
Sseguya in an interview with New Vision said he is impressed with the response of players in training and he only hopes that those injured recover in time and work on their fitness levels earlier.
"We worked on correcting mistakes and we are ready to go. I'm convinced the boys will do better and I hope those who are injured recover earlier to work on their fitness," Sseguya added.

Four players including Gerald Ssewankambo, Saul Kivumbi and Ronald Musajja were injured during the opening fixture against Namibia at Kyadondo which ended 40-31 in favour of the visitors.
Sseguya added that the final squad that flies out to Zimbabwe next Thursday will be named on Friday after training at Kyadondo Rugby Club.
After Zimbabwe, the team will on July 30, play Kenya in their last fixture in Nairobi that will also double as the return leg of the Elgon Cup.
