Wokorach: Why Uganda should focus on Rugby 7s

Uganda 7s Captain Michael Wokorach believes Uganda Rugby Union should give more focus on the rugby 7s since it is easy to fund and they can achieve more in the version.

The player who has decided to focus on 7s at National level feels they can easily get to the top level with the 7s side which has already represented the country in the World Cup, Commonwealth games and part of the World 7s Series.

“I would definitely say sevens. This the shortcode of rugby and this is something easy to fund because there are not so many players” Wokorach told Kawowo Sports.

“Over the years you have seen the success that the sevens has brought about. We have gone to the World Cup, Commonwealth, and most-watched Sevens in Hong Kong. If only the Rugby Union could choose which one will take them places, I think it’s definitely the sevens because it has had more exposure, more success over the years and it’s something that could take Uganda to the next level,” he added.


The Heathens star feels the country has the right crop of players to help the side compete at top level in the shorter version.

“You can see countries like Fiji, they are not very good at the 15s but you see what they have done for their sevens, USA and our neighbours Kenya. So Sevens is something that can take us places because we have a very good bunch of players who can take us to the level we want to go.”
