All fifteen players currently in Namibia for a training camp will be fielded during this weekend’s Safland Sevens in Swakopmund.
Kenya Sevens Team Manager Erick Ogweno, speaking to Kenya Rugby on Thursday morning said, “The tournament rules at this tournament allow us declare teams of 12 per game hence the decision to give everyone who travelled an opportunity to play.”
Innocent Simiyu’s charges will start their fixtures against Namibia, S.A All Stars and Germany on day one before playing South Africa in their final pool match on Sunday morning ahead of the knockouts.
The top four teams in each section at the close of play in their respective sections will advance to the cup quarterfinals on Sunday with the bottom placed teams in each pool contesting for the shield.
