Well aware that rugby 7s requires explosiveness, fitness, speed and endurance of players, the national sevens team coach has sought the services of the national sprinter Ali Ngaimoko as his side prepares for the Commonwealth Games In Glasgow Scotland in July.
 

Tolbert Onyango told the New Vision that calling Ngaimoko to handle the boys will help them improve on their speed and explosiveness that is still wanting in the players.
 

“Yes you can’t be an expert in all fields and that why I called my longtime friend Ngaimoko to help me in that area,” Onyango stated.
 

“What I want is to take a competing team in the Commonwealth Games that will be third in Africa to South Africa and Kenya and I’m confident we can make it,” Onyango stressed before adding that the move has worked.
 

The 200m and 4X400m relay athlete when contacted after the morning training session at Kyadondo said,” I was called to handle the sprint and speed in the team and the boys are responding positively, a thing I’ am proud off.”
 

The team sponsored by Kenya Commercial Bank will play a trial tournament in Kenya before leaving for Glasgow for the commonwealth games.
 

The squad training includes, Ramathan Govule, Justin Kimono, James Ijongat Emma Echudu, Ezekiel Okou, James Odong, Philip Pariyo and Alfred Bijik.
 

Others are Philip Wokorach, Allan Otim, Benon Kizza, Lawrence Ssebuliba, Michael Wokorach, Asuman Mugerwa, Jasper Ochen James Musiitwa and Gabriel Aredo.
