Omondi, Muhati set to debut as McGrath names squad to Dubai and Cape Town


By MaryAnne Musilo,

Ronnie Omondi and Bob Muhati set to debut as Damian McGrath named the Shujaa squad to the second and third legs  of the 2023 Sevens World Series in Dubai and Cape Town.

Commenting on their inclusion, McGrath said they have introduced two more new caps who were two of the most outstanding players on the recent National Sevens Circuit and that Bob Muhati is coming in the forwards and Ronnie Omondi comes in at half back.

“We’ve got faith in both these two players, they’ve trained very hard and very well and they will join George Ooro and Dennis Abukuse from the last leg as new starters.”

Vincent Onyala and Bush Mwale do not make the travelling party, something that McGrath addressed, saying, “unfortunately we’ve lost Vincent Onyala to a season ending injury, which is a real blow for the team. Vincent is one of the world’s best sevens players in my opinion and he’ll be a difficult man to replace.”

“Bush Mwale has been unavailable for training, because of the off-field issues, he’s had to take a part time job, which means he’s not available for training, ” said McGrath.

Shujaa squad: Nelson Oyoo (Nakuru,Captain), Johnstone Olindi (KCB), Daniel Taabu (Mwamba), Bob Muhati*(KCB), George Ooro(Strathmore Leos), Ronald Omondi*(Mwamba), Billy Odhiambo(Mwamba), Kevin Wekesa (Kabras Sugar), Anthony Omondi (Mwamba), Herman Humwa (Kenya Harlequin), Edmund Anya (Impala), Willy Ambaka, Dennis Abukuse (Menengai Oilers)
