Avengers, Black Pearls and Thunderbirds took part in Tier A games while Blue Whales, Black Opals, Lady Swans, Black Diamonds, Lady Pacers and Ewes took part in Tier B matches.
Black Pearls emerged winners of the day after defeating Thunderbirds (40-5) and Avengers (19-7). In the junior category, Blue Whales defeated Black diamonds in a close score (14-15)
Quote from Beatrice, the Women’s Rugby Development Officer.
The confirmation to take part in the 7s was a clear indication that teams missed games. The level of competition from all teams was stunning, great improvement from Tier B teams as there was more game understanding. Women’s rugby is on the drive to register more ladies’ teams taking part in all our local games hence creating a wide pool for National player selection.
Quote from Golden Boot Winners
‘’The win is attributed to hard work and teamwork. We have put in a lot of work to prepare as a team, our coach and the management.”- Charlotte Mudoola, Golden Boot Winner
