On 24th Friday the Lionesses began a three day camp in Nairobi as they intensify their preparations for the World Series qualifiers.

According to head coach Kevin Wambua, the camp will help bring cohesive bond amongst the players.

”We of course are keen on creating a cohesive bond amongst the players. It will also assist in our final preps before we name the final travelling party for the qualifiers in Hong Kong.” Said Kevin Wambua.

The world –famous Hong Kong tournament retains its status as the largest on the HSBC sevens worldwide.

The winner of the women’s Qualifiers will be promoted to the HSBC World Rugby Women’s Sevens series in 2017/18.

Wambua is expected to name the final squad in the coming week.
