Kenya 15s rugby team not losing focus

19 February 2014, 12:35

Nairobi - Kenya Head Coach Jerome Paarwater has welcomed his side's participation in the 2014 Vodacom Cup but went on to reiterate that the Africa Cup in Madagascar remains the bigger picture.

Speaking in Nairobi during the official launch of Kenya Breweries Limited's sponsorship of his team, Paarwater said, " We are thankful for the sponsorship. Our first job is to go to the Vodacom Cup and play rugby."

" Our task is to put in strong performances during the Vodacom Cup, but the end game for us is the CAR Cup in Madagascar. That is the bigger picture," he added.

Kenya will play in the 2014 as Tusker Simba XV and open their campaign with a tie against the Eastern Province Kings on Saturday 8 March and will play six more matches in the intervening weeks, their final match a tie away to Toyota Free State XV on Saturday 26 April in Bloemfontein.

The team is using the tournament as preparation for the 2014 Confederation of African Rugby's Division 1A championships which take place in Madagascar from 26 June to 6 July. The winner of this year's championship earns Africa's sole ticket to the Rugby World Cup scheduled to take place in England in 2015.
