Large uganda sevens tackled 800

SQUAD ANNOUNCEMENT: Uganda return to Dubai for the first time in 11 years when they line up alongside South Africa in Pool B of the World Sevens Series opener.

The African side last played in Dubai back in 2005 and last appeared on the World Series in 2007, when they were knocked out of the Shield semifinal in George by Canada, losing 5-3.

Uganda were confirmed as the invitational side at both Dubai and Cape Town back in September after winning the Africa Sevens title. They will also play in the 2017/18 Series qualifier at the Hong Kong Sevens in April.

Head coach Tolbert Onyango named a wider 14-man squad but confirmed only 12 players would be travelling to the first two rounds.

Onyango's side will face South Africa, USA and Scotland in Pool B.

Uganda squad: Byron Oketayot, Eric Kasiita, Ramathan Govule, Adrian Kasiito, Michael Wokorach, Philip Wokorach (captain), Lawrence Ssebuliba, Kevin Keremundu, Pius Ogena, Solomon Okia, Al Hadji Manano, James Odong.
