meanwhile Rams coach player Richard Lumu lived by example scoring two tries to inspire his side to 12-10 defeat of Sadolin Mongers in final the National Rugby 7s tournament Makerere Circuit at Grave Yard ground Makerere on Saturday.
Lumu also scored a try in the semi-final as his side upset former champions and pre-tournament favourites Hima Cement Heathens 7-5.
"We came as underdogs but we knew that sevens rugby is different from 15s a side and we can win. So that belief inspired us to work hard and indeed we are now Champions of the Makerere Circuit.
"The win is a big motivation for us in the Second Circuit which is the Kitaka Memorial at Legends Rugby ground and we shall come to win," Lumu added.
Mongers who defeated Kobs 14-5 in the semi-final attributed the defeat to cheating.
"The finals are supposed to be 10minutes each half but I was surprised we played seven minutes each half." Mongers coach Kigongo Ssebalamu.
In Sevens rugby is played seven minutes each half but at the final it is 10minutes each half.
