The Kenya Rugby Union has restructured and rescheduled the National Sevens Circuit to accommodate the remaining rounds before the repeat presidential election set for Tuesday 17 October 2017. Consequently, the remaining rounds will be played on the following dates.
Round 3: Prinsloo Sevens, Nakuru, 23/24 September
Round 4: Sepetuka Sevens, Eldoret 30 September/1 October
Round 5: Dala Sevens, Kisumu, 7/8 October
Round 6: Christie Sevens, Nairobi, 14/15 October
The Dala Sevens, originally set for 21/22 October will now be played on 6/7 October in Kisumu while the Sepetuka Sevens will now be played on 30 September/1 October at the Eldoret Sports Club in Eldoret as the original venue in Ngong was not ready at the time of the last inspection.
With four tournaments in four weeks, and the importance given to player welfare, the Kenya Rugby Union has considered an amendment to Regulation 8 (a) of the Sevens Circuit manual which allows teams to submit squads of sixteen players per tournament,and four officials, one of whom must be a doctor/physiotherapist or nurse.
Additionally,team managers will be required to submit a team of twelve players for every match from the larger pool of sixteen submitted to the tournament. This list of twelve can be changed for other matches in the tournament.
