Uganda’s Rugby Cranes Head coach John Duncan and his assistant Robert Seguya named the starting line up against Kenya for the return leg of the 2018 Elgon Cup which is also an African Gold Cup clash on Saturday July 7, 2018 at RFUEA Grounds.
Philip Wokorach, Michael Wokorach, Ivan Magomu, Ronald Musajjagulanyago and Marvin Odong all return to the starting team.
Justin Kimono, Pius Ogena, James Odong, Ivan Magomu, Aaron Ofoyrwoth, Saul Kivumbi, Charles Uhuru, Eliphaz Emong, Brian Asaba and captain Asuman Mugerwa complete the starting 15.
“We are ready for action. The last training was good and all the players are mentally and physically set for the game” Asuman Mugerwa, the team captain said after the last training session.
The defeat to Namibia left Uganda at position 5 in the 6-team log with no point and a defeat in Nairobi will lower their chances of making it to the Rugby World Cup in Japan.
With Kenya and Namibia bagging two and three wins respectively in the opening matches, the Uganda Cranes will be playing catch up.
