Rugby Cranes assistant team captain Michael Wokorach believes they learnt enough during the 10-day training in South Africa and they will give Ugandans fans value for their money in the upcoming game against Namibia.

The Rugby Cranes host Namibia on July 2nd at Kyadondo Rugby Club in the Rugby Africa tier 1A match before facing Zimbabwe in Harare on July 16th and climax the campaign against Kenya in Nairobi on July 30th in a game that will also double as the Elgon Cup return leg.

Wokorach during a press briefing on Wednesday morning said, “We won’t be intimidated by the Namibia team. We have had enough training stop them.”

South African coach John Duncan is also optimistic that his side can upset Namibia.

“We are sharpening on our attacking, stealing the balls in racks and the defence on how to stop mauls which the opponents are likely to use,” Duncan said.

The Rugby Cranes are ranked 10th while Namibia, Zimbabwe and Kenya are second, third and fourth in Africa respectively.
