Shujaa head coach Damian McGrath says the return of one of the best players in the series’, Alvin ‘Buffa’ Otieno is a boost ahead of Hamilton and Sydney legs of the World Sevens Series competitions.
Otieno, nicknamed ‘the water buffalo’ has been away from the team after a brief stint in Canada and Damian McGrath remains confident that the team will turn their fortunes around.
Obviously we are a more experienced squad which is a great help to have one of the best sevens players over the last few seasons Alvin back. He is a big plus for us and though he is a bit short of sevens match fitness nut just his presence has been a huge boost,” said McGrath as he named his squad for the next two rounds of the series.
Also making his return to the team is the experienced Kabras Sugar scrumhalf Brian Tanga.
The Shujaa are in group A together with Samoa, Fiji and France.
