The Lady Cranes; head coach Leonard Lubambula has today named the squad to take part in the Rugby Africa Cup game vs Zimbabwe today.

The Women’s Rugby Africa Cup games in Uganda will take place at Kyadondo. Due to the pandemic, fans will not be allowed at the grounds but will watch the games on Uganda Rugby Union’s YouTube channel.

“We looked at three things when selecting the starting twenty-three. We looked at who understands our game mode as Uganda Lady Cranes, the attack structures, our defense patterns and having an open mind of creativity. We also looked at the fitness of the team and those that were up to the challenge of collusion dominance as we take on the Zimbabwe women. ‘’- Coach Leonard Lubambula.

The Uganda Lady Cranes will be led by Peace Lekuru the new captain assisted by Charlotte Mudoola and Patricia Anek.

‘’It is exciting that the Zimbabwe ladies are here which is a big a step of return to play in Uganda. Hoping to learn from each other but also display the skills we have because the team is full of young players and new talent which is an amazing project im excited to be part of as we build womens rugby in Uganda.’’- Charlotte Mudoola (Vice Captain).
