Victoria Cup National Team for Uganda named

The Uganda Rugby Cranes coach Thursday named the team that will take on Zimbabwe on Saturday 27th July at 4:30pm at Legends.

While addressing the media at the press conference today, Robert Sseguya (coach) assured them that the National team is ready for the Victoria Cup game and that he expects they will bring a win for Uganda.

The Rugby Cranes Management maintained 20 players and has only 3 debutants in the squad. These are; Kelvin Balagadde, Faraj Odugo and Ivan Kabagambe.

Notably missing are stalwats Brian Asaba and Ian Muyani who did not recover from the injuries received in the last game.

The Uganda team is a mixture between youth and experience and are out to put their campaign back on track after the last loss to Kenya a fortnight ago.
