Rugby Cranes 15s Squad For World Cup Qualifiers Named

The Uganda Rugby Union has released the Rugby Cranes 15s Squad that will start training for the World Cup Qualifiers.

The Provisional Squad of 35 players will start training after the ongoing Rugby Premiership League that climaxes this weekend.

Uganda will meet Kenya in the Quarterfinals of the Qualifiers that will be held in France in July.

The other matches will see Namibia face Burkina Faso, Zimbabwe meet Ivory Coast while Senegal have Algeria.

The tournament is a 2022 Rugby Africa Cup, where a winner will qualify to the 2023 World Cup that will also be hosted next year in France.

The winner of the Qualifiers will meet hosts France, New Zealand, Italy and the Americas 1 qualifier in Pool A.

The Runner-up at the tournament will have a chance to the final global Qualifiers of the World Cup.

This is the first assignment for new coach Fred Mudoola and the 15s team will be hoping to replicate the performance of the 7s team that recently won the Rugby Africa 7s Cup at Kyadondo.
