Ugandan women take their second American scalp

Yanks in Africa

A balmy, tropical Wednesday evening here on the East African equator saw the second clash of cultures at Kyadondo Rugby Club grounds, when the touring women of American Brown University B side took on their similarly developmental adversaries, Kyadondo B in their second engagement of the tour. The home side won 12-5. Both sides included relative novices to the sport and, as was to be expected, the pace and skill were not quite up to the main event the previous Saturday when, against the predictions a mighty Kyadondo A effort saw them overcome the American’s full-strength A side by a 32-8 margin.

This should not detract from what was still, for the crowd of a few hundred supporters who had skived off work early to come and watch, an entertaining 80 minutes of full contact, women’s rugby. The rest of the article can be found here.
