Uganda Cranes registered their second consecutive win in the Africa Gold Cup as they beat Morocco 47-29 in Kampala on Saturday August 11, 2018. 

Uganda scored five tries but missed out on bonus as Morocco managed to score four tries. From the win they pick four points. 

Pius Ogena had a double with the likes of Solomon Okia, Ivan Magomu and Michael Wokorach getting on the score-sheet. Kabras Sugar winger Philip Wokorach had a 100% from the boot kicking 19 points from five conversions and three penalties. 

After the win, Uganda stay third but with nine points while Morocco stay fifth with three points. 

The 2018 Africa Gold is doubling up as qualification for 2019 Rugby World Cup. As it stands, Uganda can neither qualify as Cup winner nor head to repechage as runners up; focus now turns to finishing strongly. 

Next week's matches will see Zimbabwe visit Uganda with the former looking to avoid relegation same with Morocco will head to Tunisia in season's finale.
