Uganda Rugby Sevens Cranes suffered two consecutive defeats to Germany and Chile in the ongoing HSBC Hong Kong World Seven s series.
The Cranes made only two tries and a conversion as they went down 19-12 to Germany in the first match.
They later on endured a 33-7 thumping at the hands of a more determined Chile to slim their chances of progression.
Team captain Michael Wokorach still harbours belief that the team will perform better in their next game against the Cooks Island.
“We are going to come back strong,” the captain stated before adding that, “I think we exposed Germany a lot. We are a much better team than last season.”
Uganda will need to beat the Islanders by a bigger margin for any hopes of qualifying out of the group.
