Ugandan import Phillip Wokorach and Kenya 15’s international Felix Ayange have been recalled to the Kabras side for today’s Dala Sevens
Ayange and Wokorach have been playing for the national side in various assignments. Ayange played for the Kenya Simbas in the Rugby World Cup qualifiers cum Africa Gold Cup while Wokorach represented Uganda in the Rugby World Cup Sevens in USA as well as the Africa Gold Cup matches.
Kabras, who are the defending champions have struggled in the shorter version of the game this season and currently sit in fifth place with 48 points with two tournaments left. Kabras face perennial semi-finalists KCB Northern Suburbs and Machine in Pool C at the Dala Sevens. Coach Edwin Achayo said the return of the duo will boost their side’s chances of winning a leg of the circuit .
The sugar millers are yet to get to the semis and Achayo admits the circuit is competitive this year. “If you look at the top sides the margins are very small and it can go either way but we have learnt our lessons from the weekend from the Driftwood Sevens and we will relish the challenge in playing in Kisumu in a fortnight,” he added. Achayo said having Wokorach and Ayange will be key to their hope of winning in this weekend. “The two are gifted players who can create space. Wokorach is play maker and can also score tries so am looking forward to the remaining legs and winning,” added Achayo.
