Kenya Rugby Union Statement On Kenya’s RWC 2021 Repechage Qualifier Against Colombia

The Rugby World Cup 2021 Repechage qualifier between Kenya and Colombia set for Nairobi, Kenya on Saturday 18 April 2020 has been postponed.

The decision to postpone this fixture is in support of the Kenyan Government’s precautionary measures to protect public health against COVID-19.

Kenya Rugby Union Chairman Oduor Gangla said, “While we are disappointed that the fixture cannot take place on the set date, the health and safety of the players and officials is of utmost importance. We fully support the Kenyan authorities hence our decision to postpone this fixture to a later date.”

Kenya’s Lionesses earned their ticket to this stage of the competition after finishing second behind South Africa in the 2019 Rugby Africa Women’s Cup while Colombia’s Las Tucanes defeated Brazil 23-19 in their Sudamérica Rugby region playoff fixture on Saturday 7 March 2020.
