Over the Weekend, Jinja based Walukuba Barbarians left the Kings Park Arena with a bleeding nose after being thumped by the Stanbic Black Pirates.

The fervently contested week 7 bout ended 29: 21 in favour of the incredible sea robbers who made good use of the first half where most tries were bagged, not forgetting the precious home advantage.

Immersed with endless tackles and scrums, Marvin Odong, the head coach for Stanbic Black Pirates described the game as a well fought session that managed bring another win home.

Odong said that though the performance is not the best his team would give, he is optimistic because it’s good enough to make the next opponent tremble. The Stanbic Black Pirates will be facing off with Toyota Buffaloes on Saturday 23rd March 2024, 04:00PM.  

“I’m happy we got a win, its good for us but as a coach, I think we still have a lot more to do on the pitch. We have a number of things that we need to improve especially making sure that all the 16 men are firing. Surely we shall be more dangerous than we have been today.” Odong said, adding they not worried about the coming matches because the zeal and commitment of sailing to the top is keeps raising each and every day.

Umar Balikanda, the match referee from Uganda Rugby Union described the faceoff as a good tight and well contested game.

I love the fact that all the teams came in, they all wanted to win this game. I have a feeling its one of these games, where one makes a mistake, the other team utilizes it. Both teams need to do better so they can lower the number of penalties coming from minor mistakes like collapsing a scrum, offside among others which easily be handled by the coaches.
