Current African champions Zimbabwe have named their travelling party to this weekend’s Tusker Safari Sevens tournament at Nairobi’s RFUEA Ground. They are in Pool D alongside Sevens World Series side Spain, French side Seventise and Kenyan club sevens champions KCB.
Head Coach Gilbert Nyamutsamba has included UK based Njabulo Ndlovu and Hilton Mudariki in a squad captained by Stephan “Stavo” Hunduza.
Zimbabwe, beaten Safari Sevens finalists in 1996, 2006 and 2007 will use this tournament as a build up for next month’s Rugby Africa Cup Sevens in Johannesburg which will serve as the African qualifying round for the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo, Japan.
