NAIROBI, Kenya, April 7 – All Bamburi Rugby Super Series franchises have released their provisional squads ahead of the tournament that starts on April 24.
Series chairman Aggery Chabeda said that its all systems go as far as preparations for the tournament are concerned and is excited at the buzz the event will create this year.
“K24 has come on board to Supersport to broadcast the game which allows people outside Nairobi and in the diaspora to watch the game if they cannot get to the stadiums,” said Chabeda.
Supersport will broadcast all Nairobi matches from week 1 up to the finals.
Each squad is made up of 30 players and 5 officials.
Arusha which is the home of the Tanzanian franchise Twigas will host three matches against the Sharks, Cheetahs and Lions.
“We’re pleased that the Bamburi series has given us this opportunity because it will help us develop our rugby,” said Tanzanian Rugby official Chris Wade.
“As much as we want to play countries at a higher level than us we must also remember that are striving to reach our level. If the standard of the game around our neighbourhood goes up, it bodes well for the game in the region,” said Chabeda.
Mumias Sports complex which is the new home of the Western Buffaloes will stage the clash against Ugandan outfit Ruwenzori on May 1st and Nakuru will be the setting for the battle between Rhinos and Rwenzori a week later.
