National Sevens finale postponed

The final round of the National Sevens Championship has been postponed.

This is due to the security situation in the country at the moment following two bomb blasts in Kampala this week.

The Uganda Rugby Union confirmed the development on Wednesday.

The National Rugby 7s finale was slated for this weekend at Legends Rugby Club with table leaders Betway Kobs hosting the Coronation Sevens.

“Currently, we are having a delicate security situation amidst us as evidenced as recently on November 16 with the two bombings,” a statement from Uganda Rugby Union read in part.

“Under the current circumstances, we thought it best to get our security protocols reinforced and ready for the grand finale of this exciting series. Teams safety and welfare is paramount for all in the Sport.

“In light of this and the fact that movement of players and officials might be limited at this moment, we have had to postpone the grand finale of the 2021 Guinness 7s by one week to the weekend of November 27-28.”

Kobs lost to Pirates 21-05 in the final of the Kigezi Sevens last weekend to see their lead at the top reduced to just three points.

Davis Kyewalabye’s charges are on 102 points and in pole position to retain the title they won in 2019.

Pirates are at 99 points and will be looking to snatch the title out of Kobs’ hands.
