We Want to End Tournament on a High Note – Rugby Cranes Coach

Uganda Rugby Cranes head coach, John Duncan talks to his assistant during the game against Namibia

With the Africa Gold Cup title already clinched by Namibia, there seems no cause for throwing bodies on the line as Uganda takes on Zimbabwe in the final game this weekend.

Other than determining positions, the game on Saturday at Legends rugby ground will be more about pride.

However, Rugby Cranes coach John Duncan believes the result will be important for Uganda.

The South African tactician notes that he wants his team to finish on high by winning the game against Zimbabwe.

“It is important that we remain composed as we have been. A win against Zimbabwe will help us to end the tournament on a high,” he said.

Duncan also asserts that a win will be a reward to the loyal fans that have supported the team thorough.

“We have to win this game for our fans that have supported us all through. We must reward them with victory,” he noted.

Several changes are expected to be made in the team with some players rested while others switching positions.

Among the changes made, Justin Kimono who will be playing for the first time in the tournament will feature at the wing.

Kimono was initially supposed to play against Namibia but got injured.

Philip Wokorach will shift from full back to fly half while James Odong, who has featured at the blind wing all season, is set to play at 15.
