Kenya to invite U.S, Portugal to compete at Safari Sevens

NAIROBI, (Xinhua) -- Kenya will invite the United States and eight other foreign teams to compete in the annual Safari Sevens rugby tournament in November.

Kenya Rugby Union Chief Executive Sylvia Kamau is certain that all the invited teams will honor the call and compete in the three-day tournament, which will be held in Nairobi from Nov. 9-11.

Among the teams that have been asked to send their squads include Portugal, Namibia, Ireland, Wales, South Africa, Spain, USA and Uganda. Kenya will use the tournament to gauge its preparedness ahead of the start of the World Series in Dubai in December.

The team finished with highest-ever points from last year’s campaign claiming a total of 104 points under coach Innocent Simiyu.

The last time in 2003, Kenya finished in position six with 99 points then guided by current USA coach Mike Friday.

“We have sent invitation to teams like Portugal, Namibia, Ireland, Wales, South Africa, Spain, Uganda, Samoa, University of Johannesburg and Western Province. Looking at the invitation also is USA Sevens who are looking at giving us a team even if it’s their second side,” said Kamau.
