As the national rugby 15s side,(Rugby  Cranes) prepares for the Rugby Africa Cup Tier 1 B tournament in July, team coach Johannes Beukes is concerned with a lack of fly halves in the team.


Beukes told New Vision after the trial games on Saturday that despite the team having good positives, he has got the task of identifying a good fly half that can command the team.

“There is a lot of positives in the team but the fly haves are not running the show,” Joe Stated.

“I want to see a fly half running and communicating to others, but the current ones are very quiet and no one has an edge over the other,” Joe added.

He also urged players to work on their catching, kicking and line out skills because for them it is all about repeated practice.

“Our scrums are good but we have to improve on lineouts, kicking and catching which can easily be improved on once the players practice regularly,” the South African tactician observed.

Uganda will host the Rugby Africa tier 1B tournament in which the Rugby Cranes will play Senegal, Botswana, Madagascar, Ivory Coast, and Mauritius in the tournament due July 2-11 in Kampala. 

The winner of this tournament will be promoted to tier 1A.
