Confirmed! Simbas To Play In Hong Kong Tournament

Kenya’s participation at the Hong Kong Cup of Nations has been confirmed by the Kenya Rugby Union who received an official invite from the event organizers last week  .

The competition set for November 10-18, will see the Simbas come up against defending champions Russia, currently ranked 21st in the world, hosts Hong Kong who sit 24th globally and 28th ranked Chile.

The competition, which replaced the HKRU’s autumn international test series has been played since 2015 with Russia emerging victorious in the two editions held since then. Other teams that have featured in the competition include Zimbabwe, Portugal and Papua New Guinea.

The Simbas, who finished second at the recent Africa Gold Cup, are currently preparing for a two match test series against Hong Kong in Nairobi on 20th and 26th August.
