Kabras Sugar utility back Philip Wokorach has been named Uganda’s male Rugby Personality of the Year (2018) by the Uganda Press Sports Association.
In 2018,Wokorach had a fairly good year for both club and country, helping Kabras Sugar clinch silver in the Kenya Cup for a second successive season.
Apart from featuring prominently in the Africa Gold Cup, he was also instrumental in Uganda’s Africa Sevens campaign, despite the side failing to retain their title in Tunisia.
Meanwhile, Black Pearls’ Emily Lekuru scooped a similar accolade in the ladies category after a successful year with the Uganda Lady Cranes, who finished second in the 2018 Africa women’s Sevens tournament staged in Botswana.
The two were chosen by Ugandan sports journalists under the Uganda Press Sports Association (UPSA) umbrella.
