Fred Mudoola, the Rugby Cranes forwards coach, is here but you can be sure his heart and mind is in Jemmel, Tunisia where the national team is chasing a continental title.
Uganda will face Zimbabwe tomorrow in the final of the Confederation of African Rugby (CAR) Africa Cup hoping to upset the odds. “Zimbabwe is not an easy team. They have improved a lot but I am hoping for the best,” Mudoola told Daily Monitor.
In official games sanctioned by the world body, International Rugby Board (IRB), Zimbabwe calls the shots at 5-3.
Uganda last beat in 2010 at Kampala with a 24-15 margin. Tries from Timothy Mudoola, Michael Wokorach and Brian Odong got Uganda victory.
Conversions from Benon Kiiza (2) and Robert Seguya plus a penalty from the former finished the job. Forward Odong and backs Wokorach and Kiiza are in Tunisia whereas Mudoola (work and injuries) and Seguya (injury) missed the trip.
