Walukuba Barbarians RFC beats Warriors RFC 23:9 during their face-off at the Jinja city's based Abel Dhaira stadium.
The Walukuba Barbarians RFC secured victory over the Warriors with a score of 23 points during their rugby championship match at Jinja City's Abel Stadium on Saturday. The Warriors trailed behind with nine points, accumulated through two penalty shots and one drop goal kick, all successfully executed by their standout kicker, Amuza Kinyai.

In contrast, the Barbarians scored three tries from their forwards: Shafic Mansoor, Tom Nick, and Shakim Ssembusi, respectively. Additionally, they secured two penalty shots and one conversion, all skillfully executed by Gift Wokorach. Barbarians' head coach, Leonard Lubambula, attributes their success to the team's discipline in adhering to the established rules and guidelines throughout the match.

However, Lubambula acknowledges that the team had the potential to achieve a more significant victory, possibly exceeding 50 points, but they lost focus after securing the three tries. Looking ahead, Lubambula emphasizes the need for the team to focus on goal retention skills in their training sessions to secure a stronger position in future matches.

On the other side, the Warriors' head coach, Gabriel Aredo, attributes their underwhelming performance to poor ball management, which allowed the Barbarians to capitalize on opportunities and breach their defense to score avoidable tries. Aredo also highlights issues of miscoordination within the squad, with backlines struggling for possession while the forwards faced challenges penetrating the opponents' red zone and preventing them from scoring.

Despite the setback, Aredo expresses optimism about the team's performance in upcoming matches, aiming to qualify for the quarter-finals of the rugby championship by delivering improved performances.
