Ugandan Rugby Cranes full back Philip Wokorach will return to Kabras Sugar as the side take on KCB in the Kenya Cup final Saturday April 22 at Ruaraka.

The side stepping wizard missed the semifinal because he was on national duty for the national sevens side that took part in the Hong Kong 7s.

Kabras defeated Homeboyz to advance to the final and will now look to Wokorach to place their hands onto the trophy.

His arrival gives Kabras more options with former Kenya Harlequins star Felix Ayange now expected to move to the right wing as Wokorach takes the number 15 position.

“We face a side (KCB) that is very clinch so we shall have to build pressure from the start and be clinical as well especially off the boot,” Wokorach said as quoted by Raga House, a Kenyan news outlet earlier in the week.

“Now that we have overcome most of the hurdles along the way, we can’t afford to be complacent in the final,” the sophisticated back added.

Skipper Max Adaka drops to the bench as he prepares to face his former side; Fijian Sava Racigi replaces Adaka at hooking.

Kenya Sevens international Brian Tanga returns to the bench for Pete Nakarawa to join Dan Sikuta, Ivan Chirabu, Johnstone Nakarawa and Joseph AMalemba while Joseph Odero will also start from the bench.
