Nairobi - Spain are scheduled to play Kenya in a test match at Nairobi's RFUEA Grounds on Saturday 18 July 2015.
Currently ranked 20th on the World Rugby ranking, the Los Leones come
into this encounter off the back of a 20-3 win over another African
side, Namibia in a Four Nations tournament played on 21 June in
Bucharest, Romania. This is their first African foray since 2012 when
they defeated Namibia 38-37 in Windhoek, Namibia.
Coached by Santiago Santos who played for the side between 1982 and
1992, the Los Leones have in their ranks players such as fly half
Pierre-Emmanuel Garcia who has had stints at leading French clubs
Castres and Clermont Auvergne, hard running Jaime Nava who is the
skipper of the side and fullback Sergi Aubannell, players who are
expected to light up the stage.
This will be the first ever test match between the two sides, despite
the two teams have met severally in the sevens version of the game and
it promises to be an exciting encounter.
