Philip Wokorach scores a try for A.S.B.C

Wokorach scored a try in the last A.S.B.C outing as they won, 27-08, away against RC Drancy on September 27, 2020. He played in the outside center position where most of his home fans are not accustomed to seeing him.

This was Wokorach’s first try for the newly-promoted club this season since making a dream move from Bourges XV.

Coincidentally, Metropolitan’s last match was against the same team RC Drancy a few weeks later on October 10. Metropolitan won the match 16-26 to go top of the table.
