Uganda Rugby Cranes captain Asuman Mugerwa bemoaned their leaky defence after suffering a 55-6 loss against Namibia in their Africa Gold Cup opener at the Hage Geinghob stadium in Windhoek last Saturday.
John Duncan’s charges failed to register any try for the entire duel with their points coming off two penalties.
“We are going to work on our defence.I think we conceded so many penalties due to our poor defensive approach.Our scrums and lineouts were perfect but our defence was wanting,” Mugerwa told KweseSports after the match.
The Kabras Sugar loosehead further intimated that they must start retaining possession going forward.
“Our wingers didn’t get much of the ball because we were always kicking away possession so heading to the next match we need to reclaim possession and get the points,” he concluded.
Uganda’s second Africa Gold Cup fixture will see them travel to Nairobi’s RFUEA grounds for a date with the Kenya Simbas.The fixture will double as the Elgon Cup return leg with Simbas carrying a 34-16 advantage.
