Star of the Day! – Philip Wokorach also known as Phill Wokorach

Philip Wokorach

Born 31 December 1993 is a Ugandan rugby union player who plays as a utility back for AS Bédarrides as well as playing sevens for Racing 92. Phill is blessed with blistering pace and endowed with strength and perfection when it comes to the game of rugby. He began playing rugby at primary school playing tag rugby before joining Kyadondo Heathens in 2002.
He led his school side, Hana Mixed International School, to the Uganda School League title in 2011 as well as coming runners up in the Blackrock Rugby Festival. He later joined Uganda Christian University in Mukono for his bachelor’s degree in business administration. During his time at Uganda Christian University, Wokorach was featured by then-MTN Heathens, and now it’s Platinum Credit Heathens. Wokorach joined the A.S.B.C. in the 2020-2021 season, and the former Heathens and Kabras Sugar star joined the ASBC from Federal 3 (Division 5) side Bourges XV, which he joined in 2019.

Moving to ASBC felt like a dream come true for the Ugandan star player because it has always been a journey for him to strive to make it to the Top 14. Phillip Wokorach is a three-time Africa 7s champion. He is perhaps Uganda’s biggest rugby export, having dominated the Kenyan scene before moving to France in 2019.
He is often Uganda’s top point scorer on the international stage. At the 2018 Rugby World Cup Sevens in San Francisco, USA, Wokorach scored 30 points, including four tries.
The France-based player is often only able and available to participate in a few sessions before major tournaments in France.
Phillip Wokorach recently founded the PW15 Foundation, which is aimed at empowering talented young people to achieve their dreams. He continues to inspire many generations with his game of rugby in that so many young Ugandan rugby players and other athletes look up to him.
