The Kyambogo Rugby Club and Uganda Rugby Union conflict over a playoffs place has taken a new twist.

The university side after a failed appeal process took matters to the High Court of Uganda at Kampala and now, a date for the court battle is out.

The 7th day of June 2022 at one o’clock has been set following case drawn and filled by M/S Joel Cox Advocates on behalf on the applicant, Kyambogo.

The university side is challenging the respondent (Uganda Rugby Union)’s move of reversing their earlier decision of replacing Kyambogo with Books.

In a document seen by Nnalubaale Sports, they are seeking a directive from Court directed to the respondent and it’s officials to not promote any team to the national league but have Kyambogo back into the playoffs.

BACKGROUND

Uganda Rugby Union reversed its decision and kicked out Kyambogo University Rugby Club from the promotional playoffs.

This followed a petition from KOBs feeder side, Boks rugby club asking hard questions as to why they had been replaced by the university side.

Saturday saw regional champions face off in the semifinals played at Makerere Graveyard grounds under tight security.

In the first game, favourites Boks whitewashed Lira Bulls 77-13 and Walukuba defeated Mbarara Titans 10-3 in the second semifinals of the day.

The earlier fixtures had Kyambogo in the place of Boks following a decision from Uganda Rugby Union deeming them not eligible fronting the big question of their independence being a feeder side of KOBs Rugby Club.
