Rugby Cranes tackle Tunisia in Africa Cup

Having conceded 153 points and only scored 17, Tunisia occupy bottom place on the Africa Gold Cup before facing off with third-placed Rugby Cranes tomorrow at Legends grounds, Lugogo.

A new half back pairing, new-look back row and a second chance to Aaron Ofoyrwoth highlighted the build-up to what many expect to be a walk in the park for the 2007 champions.

Cranes’ home campaign starts with head coach John Duncan and his assistant Robert Seguya forced into changes. Prior to pulling his hamstring on Wednesday evening, Justin Kimono had been lined up to start at blind wing in place of James Odong.

With Philip Wokorach receiving criticism for his below-par displays defensively at full back, Duncan had named the Kabras Sugar player at number 10 in a bid to give Ivan Magomu a breather.

However, the injury to Kimono changed the entire face of the back line. Odong, who had been handed the number 15 shirt, is set to return to his familiar number 11 with Wokorach tracking back to the rear end of the back line.
