The Women’s Rugby Africa Cup games in Uganda will take place at Kyadondo. Due to the pandemic, fans will not be allowed at the grounds but will watch the games on Uganda Rugby Union’s YouTube channel.
“We looked at three things when selecting the starting twenty-three. We looked at who understands our game mode as Uganda Lady Cranes, the attack structures, our defense patterns and having an open mind of creativity. We also looked at the fitness of the team and those that were up to the challenge of collusion dominance as we take on the Zimbabwe women. ‘’- Coach Leonard Lubambula.
