Uganda pick experienced squad for Sevens Challenger Series - Sports Leo

Uganda Rugby Cranes coach Tolbert Onyango has selected a squad to train ahead of the Sevens Challenger Series in Chile and Uruguay this year.

The team will have its first training session on Tuesday at Kyadondo Rugby Grounds.

The 17-man squad is comprised of 15 experienced players and two debutants, Alex Aturinda and Kevin Balagadde.

“The two debutants have done well in the past couple of months in the league and Uganda Cup and have potential to be great sevens players and we are hoping to get them up to speed with the rest of the lads,” said Tolbert.

Uganda is among the 13 teams that have been invited to participate in the two Challenger Series tournaments to be held on February 15 and 16 in Chile, and February 22 and 23 in Uruguay.

The best eight-placed teams from the 13 Challenger Series teams as a result of combined points accumulated across the two events, will qualify for Hong Kong to participate in the World Series Qualification Tournament. This will be held in conjunction with the Hong Kong leg of the Sevens Series (April 3 to 5).

Uganda squad: Ian Munyani, Pius Ogena, Solomon Okia, Desire Ayera, Adrian Kasito, Levis Ocen, Nobert Okeny, Aaron Ofoyrwoth, Michael Wokorach, Phillip Wokorach, Isaac Massanganzira, Joseph Aredo, Kelvin Balagadde, Alex Aturinda, William Nkore, Laurence Ssebuliba, Timothy Kisiga.
