Nairobi - April 1st will see the beginning of training for the Kenyan rugby team as they look ahead to international fixtures.
Ronald Bukusi, the CEO of the Kenya Rugby Union, will announce a 36-man squad later this week.
The team was last in action in
Madagascar when they lost to Zimbabwe 28-10, missing out on a chance to
qualify for the 2016 Rugby World Cup.
"We were disappointed to miss out on the
World Cup but the players must pick themselves up and start preparing
for the international fixtures slated for this year as they seek to
improve our ranking," said head coach Jerome Paarwater.
"My team has been up and about and we are looking at various players with a view to give them a chance to train with us."
Kenya are set to play Portugal, Spain, Zimbabwe, Tunisia and Namibia later in the year.
"It's very good playing against higher ranked sides as this will help us gauge our strength as a team," Paarwater added.
