Hey for you rugby 'ruffians' as one local politician quoted sometime back, mark your calendars and leave the weekend of June 20-22nd free. Tusker Safari Sevens is on!
Officials sponsors East Africa Breweries committed a total of KSh. 24 million to the festival of games which marks one of the major highlights of our annual sporting calendar. For local enthusiasts, this will be a home-coming of sorts for our team which has been exceptional in the last 2 seasons.
Going into the last leg of the IRB Sevens Circuit, the team is ranked 5th, one better than last season. It has also seen more corporate support from Virgin Air which sponsored most of their travel over the Circuit and also offered training allowances for the players.
This year will be special with the nation trying to heal wounds of the early months of 2008. This should rally our citizens together and the Boys has better bring that trophy home.
