Rugby Cranes head coach John Duncan continues to rotate his players in a bid to rest some and keep them fresh in the Africa Gold Cup challenge.

Against Tunisia on Saturday, three new faces are expected to make their debuts from the bench.

Strathmore’s Mike Otto, Heathens’ Santos Senteza and Sadolin Mongers’ Joseph Tamale will all be given chance to feature for the national side.

Marvin Odongo, Scot Oluoch, Cyrus Wathum are all out of the team on Saturday and this presents a chance to the yet-to-be tested lads.

The Cranes bench will feature mostly players with just a few caps under their sleeves.

Cox Muhigwa got his first cap against Kenya in Nairobi while Adnan Mutebi, who got his first cap against Kenya in Kampala, and has gathered 3 thus far.

Only Kevin Makmot and Gerald Ssewankambo have had permanent places on the team before.

Senteza and Tamale traveled to Nairobi as backup in case of any emergencies before the Dakar journey.

With no serious injuries registered then, the pair, alongside Scot Oluoch and Cox Muhigwa, returned to Kampala.

Uganda is third on the six-team log having garnered six points from the first two games of the campaign.

The home season will see the Cranes host Namibia and Zimbabwe after the Tunisia tie
