Cheetahs qualify for Sevens Rugby World Cup

By Lawrence Trusida

The Cheetahs have qualified for the Sevens Rugby World Cup to be played in Cape Town, South Africa in September this year despite losing to Uganda in the final of the Africa Men’s Sevens Tournament.

The national sevens rugby side only needed to make the top three of the continental showpiece to be able to qualify for the World Cup and they went one further by bagging the silver medal in a 28-00 loss to Uganda.

The silver medal also guarantees them a place at this year’s Hong Kong sevens tournament that will be used as a qualifier for the team’s that will play in the world circuit next year.
