Kobs beat Buffaloes to win Jinja 7s

Kobs came through the day without defeat.


Micheal Amolo starred as Betway Kobs defeated Toyota Buffaloes by 19-7 to claim their second consecutive sevens final at the Jinja Dam Waters Rugby Club.

The Kobs have now backed up the Kyadondo leg of the circuit with another endurance-filled display to remain the last team standing.

Speaking to the New Vision after his thunderous exploits including a cheeky chip and chase try, Amolo made it known joining the national team is paramount.

"Right now I am playing with the sole focus of joining up with the national team. In regard to the tournament, we did so well that we got little disturbance from the opposition," he said.

Kobs came through the day without defeat and their 22-00 decimation of the Warriors set the tone for their performance against the Buffaloes.

The first half ended 7-7 with both teams holding their own but Kobs pulled away in the second half with some impressive runs from Adrian Kasiito, James Ijongat and co.

This week, national Sevens coach Tolbert Onyango will be making his selections for the national team and sides like Toyota Buffaloes who have many players in the set up are bound to suffer.

Anyone selected by Onyango will not be allowed to compete for their local club side again.

Kobs have one of the freshest squads since most of their players did not partake in the International Rugby 15s season.

The competition returns to Kampala at Legends Rugby ground where Pirates will be hosts of the third leg of the National Rugby 7s series.
