Regular Safari Sevens campaigners and former African champions Uganda have began their preparations for this year’s tournament taking place from 18th to 20th October at Nairobi’s RFUEA Ground.
The 19 man team coached by former Kenya international Tolbert Onyango had their first session at the Kyadondo Rugby Grounds in Kampala on Wednesday morning.
They have been boosted by the return to full fitness of Solomon Okia, Lawrence Sebuliba and James Odongo as they look to use the tournament in Nairobi as a build up for November’s Africa Men’s Sevens in Johannesburg which this year serves as the African qualifiers for next year’s Olympics in Tokyo.
