Leons de Fer name Great Rift side


NAIROBI, Kenya, April 3- Rwandese side Leons de Fer who will be one of the 16 sides competing in the Menengai Oil Great Rift 10s on Easter weekend, have named a 15 man travelling party for the tournament.

Their squad, which includes five players from the Rwandese national team which recently took part in the Hong Kong 10s, are expected in the country on Friday.

The Leons de Fer was formed in 2004 and won their country’s national 15s title the same year and retained it the next year.

Club Secretary Jean de la Paix is relishing the visit to Nakuru, saying that it will be good exposure for his team when they compete against established sides from Kenya.

The Rwandese side is in Pool A alongside hosts and joint defending champions Nakuru RFC, Nondies and Mean Machine
