Philip Wokorach returns as Uganda Sevens name squad Challenger Series 2nd event

Uganda Sevens  12-man squad for the second World Challenger Series event scheduled for Montevideo in Uruguay has been named.

The side has been boosted by the availability of Philip Wokorach who plays for  French side AS Bédarrides and has made several appearances for Racing 92 7s.

The dependable back who missed the opening leg of the Challenger Series will be keen to inspire Uganda to have a better finish.

Noberty Okenyi has also been included in the squad after missing the Dubai event due to an injury scare as well as Timothy Mugisha.


Davis Shimwa, William Nkore and Roy Kizito who were part of the Dubai event paved the way for the three changes.

Uganda are in Pool C which consists of Uruguay, Germany and Papua Guinea. In Pool A, Kenya 7s will face off against Tonga, Georgia, and Portugal.

Meanwhile, Pool B features finalists Chile, who will compete against Hong Kong and Mexico.

The team departs on Sunday 3rd March 2024 for Uruguay. With two assignments, the Montevideo bound team on return will connect to Ghana for the All Africa Games slated for 8th to 23rd March, in Accra.

Some players who didn’t make the squad will be joining the team in Ghana.
