The Uganda national netball team, She Cranes have today won their first World Cup warm up game against Singapore by 39-18 nets.

The She Cranes had earlier lost to New Zealand 46-67 in the first build up game played on Sunday, immediately after the team arrived in Sydney for the gala.

The team will later today face Sri Lanka in the Six Nations Netball Championship at the Toa Payoh Sports Hall, and if they win, the She Cranes will qualify for the finals of the friendly games that will take place at the same venue.

According to Head coach, Rashid Mubiru, the ‘unfavourable weather’ conditions are a bit disturbing but he expects players, who are staying at the Edith Hotel, to adjust ahead of the games which commence on Friday.

“We are adjusting to the weather conditions in a shorter time. Am glad we have recorded a win. We want the same thing against Samoa on Thursday and the real World Cup games” said Mubiru, ahead of the final friendly game.

Currently Uganda is ranked third on the African continent, and the She Cranes start their World Cup bid with a match against Zambiaon Friday before playing Fiji and Wales.

Uganda last appeared for the Netball World Cup in 1979, hosted by Trinidad and Tobago.
