The big day is on tomorrow at Legends as Uganda Rugby Cranes continue to battle for the Rugby Africa Gold Cup against Namibia.

The Namibian Rugby team arrived in Uganda yesterday evening ahead of the game.

Judging by the training that went on today evening at Legends, the Uganda Rugby team seems to be in good shape and ready for tomorrow.

The lineup for tomorrow’s game is also out with a few changes from the one of the previous game with Tunisia.

Marvin Odong is still on bed-rest from the injury he got in Senegal.

Last Saturday the Rugby Cranes beat Tunisia 78-17. However, this is going to be the biggest battle on the Ugandan side in the Gold Cup because Namibia is a strong team.

Currently Uganda is third on the table, Namibia and Kenya being the first and second respectively.

This is a points-based tournament, so the team will be aiming at  earning enough points to go for the world cup qualifiers.

The winner of this tournament will take the African trophy but most importantly the top 5 teams out of the 6 have a chance to the 2019 World Cup qualifiers next year.
