Ugandan international and Kabras Sugar RFC Flashy dancing feet, Philip Wokorach has secured a move to Europe, to feature for Bourges in France, according to Nafasi Rugby reports.
“Good luck Phillip! Your achievements will inspire future generations of Ugandan players.#creatingopportunities ,” reads a social media post from Nafasi Rugby.
Philip Wokorach returned to Kenya, soon after Victoria Cup, and it now looks to make sense why that trip was urgent before he returned to Uganda to link up with Tolbert Onyango’s 7s side getting ready for Safari 7s in Kenya and Africa 7s in South Africa. He has since left the 7s camp briefly.
Philip has had a glittering rugby career in Uganda and Kenya, recently topping the scoring charts in the Kenya Cup, helping Kabras finish runners up behind KCB while at it, and featuring for Samurai 7s in Amsterdam.
Bourges, Philip Wokorach’s reported destination, are a rugby club based in the French city of Bourges and feature in the third Federal Division Pool 7 where they lie in second place and won 33-26 this past weekend against Argentacoise Sports Union. The competition involves 226 clubs in 21 pools of 8, and winners can progress up into higher division of competition. The competition above Fédérale 3 is Fédérale 2 and above that, Fédérale 1. Above the Fédérale divisions are the two professional leagues, Rugby Pro D2 and the highest, the Top 14.
