KRU Promises Action Packed Weekend

33

Two national teams will be on duty this weekend, starting with the men’s national sevens team, Shujaa, who play in the Sevens World Series opening tournament in Hong Kong and men’s national fifteens team, Simbas, as they begin their final quest for Rugby World Cup 2023 qualification in Dubai.

Locally, the pre-season Victoria 15s and Impala Floodlit competitions enter the semifinal stage.

Kenya starts proceedings at Hong Kong Sevens against Ireland starting 10.40am (Kenyan time) on Friday at the Hong Kong Stadium.

The Kenya 15s side Simbaswill also be in action this weekend in the RWC Repechage in Dubai trying to qualify for next year’s Rugby World Cup in France.

The Simbas missed out on direct qualification to the RWC set for France after they suffered a 36-0 defeat to Namibia in the final of the 2023 RWC Africa Cup in July in France.

Simbas will begin their campaign against USA on this coming Sunday November 6 at the Sevens Stadium, before clashing with Portugal on November 12. They will then wrap up against Hong Kong on November 18.

The winner of the competition will join Wales, Australia, Fiji and Georgia in Group C of the RWC.
