Uganda last beat Kenya during the Nairobi game after a draw in Kampala to lift the crown in 2006.

Kenya have been training in South Africa under new coach Jerome Paarwater as the two neighbours start the long journey to qualify for the 2015 Rugby World Cup.

Coach Peter Magona will miss the services of Mathais Ochwo, the outstanding man of series last year, who is injured. Hooker Alex Mubiru will lead. Veteran Robert Seguya, absent from the team due to injury, returns. He will play at scrumhalf like he did six years when Uganda won the Africa Cup and not on the flank.
But perhaps as significant is that Seguya will be partnered by Jasper ‘Bascut’ Ochan at fly-half as Rugby Cranes continue to seek a solution at the problematic halfback position. Ochen was a star for Uganda at U-19 level but is yet to translate that promise into class.

Uganda last beat Kenya away in the Elgon Cup in 2006 when they dished out a 22-0 hiding in Nairobi to lift the trophy following a 7-7 draw in Kampala.
