Lionesses fifteens captain Peruz Muyuka says that her team is ready for next week’s Rugby Africa Women’s Cup Pool B competition in Kampala, Uganda.
The side is drawn against Zambia and Uganda for the week long round robin competition.
Speaking at the team’s training base at the RFUEA Ground on Wednesday morning, Muyuka said of the Zambians, “We have never played Zambia before…it’s not going to be an easy match as we don’t know what to expect.”
With a clash against neighbors and rivals Uganda looming, the utility forward said, “Uganda are our rivals. Either one of us is going to prove themselves. We are ready mentally and physically and hoping for the best.”
“ The team has gelled well. We are so excited as it has been a while since we played a fifteens international. We are ready to prove that we have not been training in vain,” she concluded.
The Lionesses will begin their campaign with a clash against Zambia at 4.00pm on Saturday 29 October before playing hosts Uganda at 4.00pm on Wednesday 2 November.
Head Coach Dennis Mwanja is expected to announce the final travelling squad next week.
