Uganda Sevens has completed a three-day camp in Jinja ahead of a busy schedule beginning in March 2018.
Head coach Tolbert Onyango took charge of the camp that gave him an opportunity to work on different aspects of the game as reported by Uganda based Daily Monitor.
Uganda will head to Hong Kong in April for Hong Kong Sevens where they will be competing at the World Sevens Series qualifiers.
After Hong Kong, Uganda will head to Australia for the Commonwealth Sevens. In July, Uganda will head to USA for the Sevens World Cup.
Onyango picked positives from the camp and rated it as a success. “The new boys have gelled in properly and there is healthy competition in the squad,” Onyango told Daily Monitor.
“Camp was about getting ourselves up to speed with game requirements. Structure, conditioning and team building,” said Onyango.
Kenya Harlequins trio of Solomon Okia, Joseph Aredo and Aaron Ofoyrwoth were among the players that attended the three-day camp.
Uganda are pooled in Pool D along with Fiji, Wales and Sri Lanka for the Commonwealth Games.
They will also tussle it out with the likes of Ireland, Georgia, German, Japan, Hong Kong, Zimbabwe, Cook Islands, Papa New Guinea, Jamaica, Chile and Uruguay for the sole spot as a core status side in the HSBC World Rugby Series in Hong Kong.
