She Cranes Head Coach Fred Mugerwa explained the case for the other players yet to join camp as he states, 

“We are supposed to have ten players here but seven reported, the other two didn’t come because they are with the team that traveled to Tanzania and the other one had issues at her work place but I expect them to report tomorrow (Wednesday).”

He also revealed the plans and targets for the team as he hopes for the best from the girls .

“ Today we started with going through the fast five rules, how the centre pass is taken, we had to go through them because this is the first time these girls are playing this tournament and in the evening, we trained and much emphasis was on how we score goals for two points.” 

“Our target is to see that we rub shoulders with those nations we call big, I got time and watched previous fast five games but we can handle those teams and we are going to disappoint some.”

This is the first time Uganda is taking part in this tournament because it’s her first time again to be in top six world ranked  nations that qualify to feature in this tournament.

The team is expected to travel on Sunday 30th October with nine players and Mary Nuba will join them while in New Zealand.

The tournament has six nations, that is; Uganda, South Africa, England, New Zealand, Australia and Jamaica.
