Uganda is the biggest climber in the latest World Rugby rankings, leaping eight places after scooping 1.91 points for that spectacular win in Zimbabwe.

On Saturday the Rugby Cranes pulled off a shock win over Zimbabwe on their own turf, the their first loss at home in three years, and the first time they were losing to Uganda.

That the Sables threw away an early lead to the visitors makes the accomplishment sweeter.

The rampaging Cranes managed five tries past the Sables, matching the hosts pound-for-pound until they run away with the win.

Tomorrow, Thursday, Rugby Cranes travel to Nairobi for an all-out-war duel on Saturday against their noisy neighbours at RFUEA grounds.
