Jeff Oluoch is set to make his first start of this season’s World Rugby Sevens Series after being named in Shujaa’s travelling squad to the Hong Kong and Singapore legs set for late March and early April.

Johnstone Olindi also returns to the squad for the first time since the Dubai and Cape Town rounds of this season’s series as Head Coach Damian McGrath named a selected squad to do battle in the Far East.

Oluoch, who recently became a police officer after passing out from the Administration Police Training College, said he is looking forward to help the team.

“It feels good to be back with the team. I have been putting in a shift and it feels good to be back. There are massive expectations from everyone but we know the boys will not let you down.

“To all our fans out there, we thank you for the support out there…we still need you for the coming assignments and we are sure we’ll earn our slot and keep the side afloat as a core team,” he said.

Shujaa are in Group D in Hong Kong alongside New Zealand, Ireland and Australia.

Shujaa squad to Hong Kong and Singapore: Daniel Taabu, George Ooro, Billy Odhiambo, Kevin Wekesa, Tony Omondi, Herman Humwa, Nelson Oyoo (Captain), Johnstone Olindi, Edmund Anya, Brian Tanga, John Okoth, Alvin Otieno, Jeff Oluoch
