Otieno, Tanga recalled in Kenya squad

Alvin ‘Buffa’ Otieno and Brian Tanga have been recalled to the Kenya Sevens squad for the Hamilton and Sydney legs later this month.

Otieno surprisingly withdrew from 7s in September on the eve of the Rugby Sevens World Cup in Cape Town to pursue a professional stint in Canada but things did not work out for him while Tanga last played for the Sevens team in 2019 and makes a welcome return to the squad following a three-year absence.

Coach Damian McGrath said the return of the duo will be key with Shujaa sitting in 14th place and keen to avoid relegation.

Mwamba’s Billy Odhiambo misses out on selection due to concussion while Menengai Oilers’ John Okoth and Daystar Falcons youngster Floyd Wabwire will make their debut.

Kenya is in a tough Pool A for the Hamilton Sevens, where they face Samoa Fiji and France.
