Uganda Rugby Union General Secretary, Peter Odongo referred to Elgon Cup 2022 cancellation to a blessing in disguise.

Watch video of the story.

Uganda Rugby Cranes were meant to host Kenya Simbas last Saturday and travel to Kenya for the return leg in Kisumu City but Kenya Rugby Union sent in a cancellation letter.

“We understand the frustration. Though, we don’t know what exactly was in the kitchen prior to the letter we received,” Odongo told Nnalubaale Sports.


“Social media roasting pushed us to fix it and we are glad a better ranked opponent in Zimbabwe allowed to play us.”

Away from the relationship that has been in turbulence for the last three years (two thanks to the Covid19 pandemic), this Rugby Cranes will host the Sables in a Victoria Cup encounter.

The quick fix game will be at Legends Rugby Club this Saturday and a fanfest in place according to John Paul Ssemakula the Connections Manager Nile Breweries,

“The day will have discounted Nile Special and an after party with Diva Winnie Nwagi headlining it,” noted Ssemakula saying a replica of the Africa 7s is that fans should expect.

For those with service worries at the said venue, a mini bar has been put in place in between the two stands of the Forest Mall end.
