One of the revelations in sports in Kenya this year, the 7s teams heads to the 6th leg of the IRB Sevens series in Adelaide, Australia. Having jumped into the fifth place in the rankings thus far, the team ought to be one to watch again as the main challengers face off in the pool games. They face France, Fiji and England in this round. Given earlier experiences, this ought to be a tough call.
Though pundits may want to write off the team, I feel they can raise their game and play in the quarter-finals once again. Let's hope the brothers keep their feet on the ground and launch themselves to greater heights to Sevens glory. Keep hope alive, down under !
Locally, the Bamburi Rugby Super Series comes to a end with the Final, with Rhinos and Lions facing off at 4.00 p.m. Thus much said, appreciation to Bamburi for sponsoring the event for the third year running and even committing to a future in the Series. Appreciation to other current sponsors such as KenChic, Ramco, Precision Air and Kenya Bureau of Standards. The future of this sport is truly bright.
We also hope the technical bench of both national 15-a-side team and 7-a-side have kept their notepads close and noted outstanding talent to add to their squads. Go there, be part of the crowd and enjoy your favourite drink as you cheer the team of your liking. KRFU Grounds(along Ngong Road) at 4.00p.m. Be there !
