Betway KOBs topped Pool A to storm the Quarterfinals on Day One of the Mileke Circuit of the Guinness 7s at Legends.

KOBs obliterated Jjengo (55-00), beat Rams (24-07) before proving too good for Warriors (46-00) in the last group game.

Against Warriors, Karim Arinaitwe scored a hat-trick while Pius Ogena, Justin Kimono, Byron Oketayot and Faraji Odugo also scored a try each.

The defending champions, who won the National Sevens in 2019, will face Mongers in the Quarterfinal.

Mongers finished second in Pool D, behind Toyota Buffaloes, a side that beat them 24-05.

KOBs will fancy their chances against Mongers but Heathens might hand them a tougher test in the semis in case they negotiate past Impis in the other Quarterfinal tie.

Pirates who won the title in 2018, will battle it out with Hippos. Pirates beat Jaguars (46-00), Sailors (45-00) and Impis (29-00) to top Pool B.

Heathens on the other hand, record winners of the National Sevens with 11 titles, beat Pacers 66-00, Rhinos 41-00 before edging Jinja Hippos 17-00.

The eight teams – Rhinos, Jaguars, Stallions, Jjengo, Sailors and Pacers – who failed to get out of their respective groups, will play classification games on Sunday.

After Sunday, all roads will lead to Gulu 7s on 9th October which will be hosted by Gulu Elephants.
