National Champions Butula Boys once again demonstrated their championship pedigree as they successfully defended their Western Region School’s 15s title and secured qualification for the Nationals with a hard-fought 10-3 victory over Koyonzo in the final in Chavakali.

In a thrilling encounter, Butula seized the initiative early on, scoring a try in the opening minutes of the game to take a 5-0 lead. Their dominance continued as they added another try just before halftime, extending their advantage to 10-0.

Despite Koyonzo Boys’ determined efforts to tighten their defence in the second half, Butula managed to maintain their lead.
