Ivan Magomu, Marvin Odong and Phillip Wokorach return for Elgon Cup

Ahead of Uganda’s second game in the Gold Cup, which doubles as the return leg of the Elgon Cup, Coach Duncan has recalled all his big guns while cutting a few as well.

Phillip Wokorach makes his return to the national team after opting out of the game against Namibia due to fatigue, and he comes in for now injured Ssebuliba Kayiwa Lawrence who suffered from a broken arm while in action against Namibia. Michael Wokorach and Gerald “Kasooto” Ssewankambo make the optional midfield choices replacing Kobs youngster Ian Munyani and Rhinos’s Eric Mula. James Ijongat, Uganda’s only points scorer in Windhoek with two penalties, has been omitted in favor of Pirates skipper, Ivan Magomu. Arthur Mukama, Musa Muwonge and Adnan Mutebi are the other three to make way for Ronald Musajja, Marvin Odong and Martial Tchumkam respectively.

Uganda were on the ruthless receiving end of a 55-06 beating the last they played in the Gold Cup (about a fortnight ago) and go to Kenya with hopes a salvaging a positive result and boosting their chances of featuring in the World cup in Japan. Uganda currently lie in 5th with 0 points and just above Tunisia based on points difference.

The last time Uganda played Kenya, in Kenya, was an affair of mixed emotions as Uganda conceded a late penalty try which would draw the game and inadvertently hand the Kenyans the Elgon Cup, having won 56-51 on aggregate.
Kenya Simbas already have a commanding lead on the road to retaining the Elgon Cup as they convincingly beat Uganda 34-16 in the first round of the Elgon Cup in May in Kampala.

Namibia are leading in the Gold Cup standings with 15 points and enjoying a 7 points cushion, with Kenya coming in with 8 points and a game less. Morocco, who have played three games already have three points having drawn once and lost twice. Zimbabwe comes in in fourth place with two. Uganda and Tunisia who are yet to gather a single point occupy the last positions with Tunisia at the very bottom owing to a huge negative points margin.

The winner of the 2018 Africa Gold Cup will automatically qualify for Rugby World Cup 2019 in Japan as Africa 1, joining reigning champions New Zealand, South Africa, Italy and the repechage winner in Pool B.The runners-up will head to a global repechage tournament to be held in Europe in November 2018 to determine the fifth representative in Pool B in Japan will be.
