Wokorach headlines Uganda’s 12-man squad for Sevens World Cup

Uganda 7s head coach Tolbert Onyango has summoned 12 players that will do duty at the Sevens World Cup slated for July 20-22 at the AT&T Park in San Fransisco, USA. 

Justin Kimono and Byron Oketayot are the only  new faces in the side that starts its campaign with a pre-round of 16 clash against Samoa on 20 July.

Kimono and Oketayot have replaced the pair of Joseph Aredo and Lawrence Sebuliba who is nursing an injury.

Kenyan based quartet of Philip Wokorach, Aaron Ofoyrwoth, James Odong, Solomon Okia has maintained their places in the side.

Uganda booked a slot at the global showpiece after winning the 2017 Africa 7s tournament held in Kampala.

Should Uganda go past Samoa, they will book a date with England in the round of 16 and a win will propell them to cup quarters while a loss will see them drop to Bowl.

Uganda Sevens: 1. Desire Ayera 2. Timothy Kisiga 3. Aaron Ofoyrwoth 4. Pius Ogena 5. Byron Oketayot 6. Adrian Kasiito 7. Solomon Okia 8. James Odong 9. Michael Okoroch 10. Justin Kimono 11. Phillip Wokorach 12. Ivan Magomu
