Lawrence Ssebuliba, Solomon Okia and James Odongo, all who got injured in the 2018 international season  have made the team in training. Ssebuliba has been continuing his rehabilitation with 2019 Premiership Champions Hima Cement Heathens and recently made a competitive comeback at the final 7s edition, Kitaka 7s. Solomon Okia  has also rehabilitated well and featured for Kenya side Harlequins in the Driftwood 7s.

Kevin Kermundu, fresh from his US tour, has made the extended team, alongside Heathens player of the year Paul Epillo.   2019 National 7s top scorer Okeny Norbert has also made the team, alongside MVP Pius Ogena, all from the Betway Kobs, 2019 Roke 7s Champions.
