BY FRED HIDULA

The UCU Shepherds have finished third in this year’s Makerere 10s Rugby Tournament held on October 29, at Makerere Rugby Ground.

The Shepherds lost to Dumbell Cheetahs, 30-14, in the semi-finals before beating Makerere Impis, 19-7, in the third and fourth place play-off, to finish as second runner-up.

The three-day festival had different categories: touch rugby, tag rugby and contact rugby.

At the end of the festival, the Kyadondo Rugby Club were crowned champions after beating Dumbell Cheetahs 20- 17 in sudden death extra time, after the game ended 17-all in normal time.

The Shepherds enjoyed an impressive group stage spell, after wins against Impis and Rams and a draw against Walukhuba Rugby Club.

William Nkore was UCU’s top scorer with 40 points.
