Jeff Oluoch is set to make his first start of this season’s World Rugby Sevens Series after being named in Shujaa’s travelling squad to the Hong Kong and Singapore legs set for late March and early April.

Johnstone Olindi also returns to the squad for the first time since the Dubai and Cape Town rounds of this season’s series as Head Coach Damian McGrath named an experienced squad to do battle in the Far East.

Denis Abukuse and Brunson Madigu, who were part of the team on duty in North America do not travel to the Far East.

Commenting on his return to the squad for the first time with the RWC Sevens 2022, Oluoch, who recently became a police officer after passing out from the Administration Police Training College said, “It feels good to be back with the team. I’ve been putting in a shift and it feels good to be back. There are massive expectations from everyone but we know the boys won’t let you down.”
