How national team summons will affect the Nile Special 7s Series

Should all or some of the summoned players not be available for their clubs any more this season, this will affect the ongoing Nile Special Rugby 7s Series. How?

  1. A level playing field for all core sides, thus more exciting rugby

As we saw last year, playing the national 7s series without national team players yields some exciting matches, shocking results, and unexpected winners. Already, this year, the Tooro 7s showed us that even with them still around, upsets can happen. More is coming, and it will be exciting for the fans to watch.

  1. New faces topping the charts

Nobert Okeny tops the try-scoring charts with twenty-three tries, closely followed by Arnold Atukunda (22), Pius Ogena (20), and Ivan Bulima (18) plus Mark Osuna, Alex Aturinda and Lawrence Ssebuliba – all tied with sixteen tries. Of these top five scorers, Atukunda, Bulima, and Ssebuliba have not been summoned. Without a doubt, there will be a new name and face topping the charts, starting with the Kyadondo 7s.
