After Breaking his Tibia on Stint with Esher RFC, Heathens and national team Rugby star Phillip Wokorach is to be sidelined for 10 weeks- it has been confirmed.

According to Daily Monitor, Wokorach is expected to be down for up to 10 weeks with six weeks for recovery and four weeks needed for rehabilitation.

Wokorach broke the tibia of his right leg while playing for Esher rugby club which was hosting Chinnor RFC on Saturday after a tackle five minutes into the game.

Phillip moved for a four months stint in mid- January to the English Rugby Union club based in Surrey – Hersham , England and has since scored 4 tries in 3 games scooping as many man of the match accolades.

Colleague and Heathens captain Michael Wokorach backed Phillip’s bouncing back, trusting his resilient character.

“With Gods grace you will have a speedy recovery and you will get back to your feet and bounce back harder and stronger,” he told Phillip.

There are fears Phillip’s injury could have recurred after breaking a leg in 2013 during league semifinal between Pirates and Heathens which saw him miss action for up to six months.

Wokorach’s injury is a setback for the national team, Rugby Cranes ahead of the Elgon Cup and 2015 Confederation of Africa Rugby tier 1B to be hosted by Uganda.
