Members of the Tunisia Rugby team at the Kyadondo Rugby Grounds

The Tunisia Rugby team arrived early in the country ahead of their third game of the Africa Gold Cup against the Rugby Cranes on Saturday in Kampala.

This is determined to help them get used to the weather conditions in East Africa as they look for a positive result and to bounce back from their heavy defeat against our neighbors Kenya.

Tunisia have kicked off the campaign with two losses to Namibia (53-07), plus yesterday’s big loss to Kenya.

Kenya beat Tunisia 100-10 in their second match of Africa Gold Cup on Saturday July 8, 2017 in Nairobi.

The Simbas had drawn with Uganda in their first match two weeks ago and could not afford another slip. They will also be hosting Senegal in Nairobi from 2pm on 15 July in their next game.

The rugby cranes have so far played two away games and on the 15th July, they will host Tunisia at Legends Rugby Club in their first home game.

Uganda will be aiming to continue their impressive start after they drew 33-33 with Kenya and won 17-16 against Senegal in their first two games of the competition.

The last time Tunisia came to Kampala was in 2009 and they beat Uganda 41-17. The game will be live on Kwese Free Sports at 4 pm

The tournament takes place until August 5 with Namibia, Zimbabwe, Tunisia, Uganda, Kenya and Senegal participating, playing home and away matches.

For every win, a team gets four points, two in a draw, 0 in a defeat while one is available for a bonus win.
