Joseph Aredo and the Kobs won the first Sevens circuit a Kyadondo.

Kobs started their national sevens title defence with maximum points from the first circuit of the tournament.

The defending champions defeated Buffaloes 12-7 in the final to win the Kyadondo Sevens held on Saturday.

Kobs, who have had adequate preparations while the Rugby Cranes featured in the Africa Gold Cup, looked fresher than most of the sides at the tournament.

Adrian Kasiito, Ramathan Govule, Joseph Aredo and James Ijongat displayed glimpses of brilliance on the day while Timothy Mudoola rolled back the years.

“It is our intention to defend the title and it was important that we start strong,” Kobs sevens captain Joseph Aredo revealed after the tournament.

Buffaloes defeated Heathens in the semifinals while Kobs defeated Pirates enroute to the final.

The six-week event is set to cover more ground this year with Gulu set to host one of the circuits.

The sevens event moves to Jinja next weekend with the Jinja Hippos playing host to the rest of the teams.

The Graveyard, Makerere and Gulu will host one circuit each while Legends, home to Pirates and Kobs, will host two events.
