Ugandan international Philip Wokorach is on the verge of signing a nine-month contract with French side Bourges from Kenya Cup side Kabras Sugar.
Wokorach has already traveled to France where he set for two sets of trials with the federal 3 club.
He saw his one-year renewable contract at Kabras Sugar expire on August 31st, 2019. Wokorach had the first training session on Tuesday in France.
Raga House understands Wokorach has been in contact with Bourges since April this year.
“I always strive and aimed to play professional rugby. This is another positive step towards that goal,” he told Raga House.
Kabras are set to miss the services of a man who has led them to back to back Kenya Cup finals as well as national sevens circuit win in 2017.
Fijian Jone Kubu or former Kenya Harlequin star Kevin Keegan will fill Wokorach’s position at fly-half/fullback.
Kabras Sugar chairman Philip Jalang’o described Wokorach as “a great talent” confirming that “yes he is gone.”
