Kenya set for Vodacom Cup debut

Kenya have been added to the Vodacom Cup this season after replacing Argentina’s Pampas XV.

The first challenge Kenya face in the tournament will be against the EP Kings.

‘We have a mandate to help improve and develop the game in Africa and Kenya’s inclusion will do a lot to uplift the game in that country as they aim to qualify for the World Cup in England in 2015,’ said Saru CEO Jurie Roux.

Kenya will play in the South Section of the competition and will be based in Cape Town. Their home ground for the duration of the Vodacom Cup will be confirmed at a later stage.
