Kabras Sugar fullback Philip Wokorach has moved from fullback to fly-half in the squad to play Tunisia in the Africa Gold Cup on Saturday July 15, 2017 in Kampala.

Wokorach has started at 15 in the two matches they have played so far but this time round Nondies winger James Odong moves from left wing to fullback.  

Kenya Harlequins backrower Ronald Musajja moves from blindside to eight which sees Marvin Odong drop out. 

Scrum-half Kevin Makmot makes way for Aaron Ofoireoth while Wokorach’s start 10 sees Ivan Magomu drop to the bench.

Apart from Wokorach and Ogena who have been deployed in different position, others remain unchanged as Pius Ogena, Michael Wokorach and Lawrence Sebuliba start at inside, outside centre and right wing.

Uganda’s first match ended in a 33-33 with Kenya before beating Senegal 17-16. They sit third with six points after two rounds of matches.

Tunisia are still looking for a first win a week after losing 100-10 to Kenya Simbas.
