Going for the fifth straight time, the Uganda Rugby Cranes will play at Commonwealth Games after previous appearances in 2006, 2010, 2014, and 2018. They will face Australia, neighbors Kenya and Jamaica at Pool D. Australia, hopefully the biggest headache for Uganda, if not Kenya, has a silver medal at Delhi 2010 remaining the best result achieved by the Australian men so far.
Uganda will be feeling pretty confident after a good sevens season of qualification with good mix of experience and youth, which will make the team ready to go in Birmingham. The Uganda Rugby Cranes 7s Coach, Tolbert Onyango, named the final Squad to represent the country at the 2022 Commonwealth Games.
