Kenya confirmed for Vodacom Cup

31 October 2014, 16:08

Nairobi - Kenya's Tusker Simba XV will once again feature in South Africa's domestic competition in 2015, the Vodacom Cup.

Tusker will again be based in Cape Town for the eight-week tournament, which runs from March 21 to May 30.

"[The invitation] showed the confidence the South Africa Rugby Union in Kenyan rugby, noting that the team is worthy of playing at such a prestigious level," Kenya Rugby Union Chairman Mwangi Muthee told reporters on Thursday evening.

"We have not heard better news in a long while. Kenyans will be excited and  happy to know that  our sponsors, East African Breweries Limited [EABL], through their flagship brand Tusker, have a three-year commitment, starting last year, to the aid of the team. It is an expensive affair but the gains from our participation in South African rugby this year was beyond imagination.

"We thank Steven Roos, senior manager for competitions at SARU, for this intervention and we shall be getting back to him so that we have smooth arrangements well before the team arrives in Cape Town next March.

"We also thank SARU President Oregan Hoskins and President of the Western Province Rugby Union, Thelo Wakefield for their tremendous support and goodwill shown to Kenya rugby and people of our country in general. These two gentlemen have remarkably strengthened the bonds between people of South Africa and Kenya. Their selflessness is simply admirable."

Kenya participated in the competition for the first this year and while they struggled to compete against the local sides, their experience nearly saw them qualify for the World Cup next year when they narrowly lost to Namibia in the African qualifiers in Madagascar last July.
