UGANDA Christian University Rugby team coach is not bothered by his team’s 37-6 defeat at the hands of Rhinos in the Nile Special Uganda Cup game that was played on Monday at Legends Kampala Rugby Club.
Anthony Kinene said this was just a wakeup call for his young team that had never tasted Super 8 rugby and is optimistic they will perform better in their next games.
“The boys have never played a Super 8 team and I think this has been a good lesson for them but we are just going to fine tune our defence and work on game situations for them to give a good account of themselves next time,” Kinene stated.
James Musitwa Mugwanya scored a hat-trick of tries, 2 penalties and 3 conversions while David Kakuba and James Ssenoga managed a try each as Rhinos sealed their 37-6 win.
Brian Twihayo and Leonard Lubambula scored UCU’s penalties.
Rhinos’ John Musoke on the other hand was impressed with his team’s performance.
“It’s not all about the margin of the win but the blending of the seniors and juniors to give us better results and I think the result has been positive,”Musoke stated.
The Nile Special Uganda Cup continues on Saturday with games in Mbale, Kampala, Lira and Gulu but with the main Nile Special activation game being in Mbale where Mutoni Warriors will face Mbale Elephants.
