Notable players on the squad include Norbert Okenyi, who is returning from an injury that kept him out of the Dubai series, and Phillip Wokorach, a France-based professional rugby player who brings a wealth of experience to the team.

However, it has been announced that four players including  Levis Ocen, Michael Wokorach, William Nkore, and Solomon Okia will not be part of the team. Ocen and Okia are now based in Europe, Wokorach left the training squad last year, and Nkore stepped aside due to work commitments.

The Rugby Cranes Sevens Challenge team is confident and motivated to make Uganda proud in the tournament. We wish them all the luck for their journey and hope they come back victorious.
