The World Cup is here

The Rugby 7s World Cup is nigh and your reigning, defending, back-to-back African Champions, Uganda, will be taking part in the biggest occasion in Sevens rugby.

Uganda made it to the tournament after making the final of the 2017 Africa Rugby 7s Championship. In a tournament hosted in their own backyard, the Uganda Rugby 7s would need late resurgence of Michael Wokorach and quick feet from Kobs utlitiy back, Adrian Kasiito to come from behind and beat Zimbabwe 12-07 in a squeaky bumtie finale.

The Uganda Rugby 7s have been drawn against Samoa in the preliminary round, after which the winner of that match will take on England to determine who will make the Championship of the World Cup. The loser from the preliminary round will be seeded to participate in the Bowl Challenge, while the loser of the round of 16 tie against England will be relegated to the Challenge competition.

Uganda have faced Samoa before, once in the Rugby series in the latter’s debut season on the international HSBC World Series stage, in Dubai. Samoa would win the game 27-19 in the Challenge Trophy quarter Finals but bullish performances from Michael Wokorach and Pius Ogena assured the world that Uganda were not a team to undermine. A 26-19 win over Japan (Uganda’s first ever at this stage) meant that the East Africans would finish in 14th place in their debut season.

New Zealand, who have won the 7s world cup on two occasions are the defending champions and one of the teams to watch, alongside two winners, Fiji, who were crowned champions in 1997 and 2005.

The back-to-back and defending champions of the HSBC World Series, South Africa, who are amongst the teams to beat, are the African representatives alongside Uganda, Kenya and Zimbabwe. Kenya attained their highest ever points tally in HSBC World Series this past season after Simiyu led the Shujaa to 104 points. Zimbabwe qualified for the World Cup owing to their final appearance against Uganda in October 2017, even though they eventually lost to Uganda.

Uganda will miss the services of Lawrence Ssebuliba who broke his arm while on 15s duty against Namibia but Coach Tolber Onyango revels in the wealth in his squad with the likes of Solomon Okia, Phillip Wokorach, Joseph Aredo, Aaron Ofoiwroth, Michael Wokorach all raring to go.

The Rugby 7s World Cup which will take place from 20th to 22nd July, will feature 24 men’s teams and will be played at AT&T Park in San Francisco in knockout format.

  24. An impressive share! I’ve just forwarded this onto a
    coworker who had been doing a little homework
    on this. And he actually ordered me breakfast due to the fact that I found it for him…

    lol. So let me reword this…. Thanks for the meal!! But yeah, thanx
    for spending some time to discuss this subject here on your web site.

  26. Neat blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from somewhere?
    A design like yours with a few simple tweeks would really
    make my blog jump out. Please let me know where you got your design. Bless you

  27. If you desire to take much from this article then you have
    to apply these techniques to your won weblog.

  28. You really make it appear really easy along with your presentation however I find this matter to be actually something which I
    think I’d never understand. It kind of feels too complicated and very vast for me.
    I’m taking a look ahead for your next publish, I’ll attempt to get
    the dangle of it!

  29. I am really impressed with your writing skills and
    also with the layout on your weblog. Is this a paid theme or did you modify it yourself?
    Either way keep up the excellent quality writing, it is rare to see a nice blog like
    this one today.

  30. What’s up mates, good post and nice urging commented here,
    I am really enjoying by these.

  31. It is perfect time to make some plans for the future and it’s time
    to be happy. I’ve read this post and if I could I want to
    suggest you few interesting things or advice.
    Perhaps you could write next articles referring to this article.
    I want to read more things about it!

  32. I have been surfing online greater than 3 hours
    these days, yet I by no means discovered any fascinating article like
    yours. It’s pretty price enough for me. In my opinion, if all webmasters and bloggers made just right content as you probably did, the internet shall be
    a lot more helpful than ever before.
