Fred Mugerwa, the She Cranes head coach revealed what they are targeting in the tournament that is slated for 4th to 6th November 2022 in Christchurch Arena, New Zealand.

“Today we started with going through the fast five rules, because this is the first time these girls are playing this tournament and in the evening, we trained and much emphasis was on how we score goals for two points.”

“Our target is to see that we rub shoulders with those nations we call big, I got time and watched a number of fast five games and we are going to disappoint some teams.”

The team is expected to travel on Sunday 30th October with nine players and Mary Nuba will join them while in New Zealand.
