Union calls up 51 players for Kenya 15s training camp

The Kenya Rugby Union (KRU) has selected a 51-man squad for a training camp in Kasarani which begins on Friday 10th April and lasts until Sunday 12th April under the supervision of Head Jerome Paarwater.

The main purpose of the camp is to select a wider Kenya squad that will feature in its upcoming international assignments this year.

“This camp will give us a chance to get the wider squad together for the international season. It will be critical for us in terms of complementing the work that the clubs have done in terms of ensuring the players are in good shape during what has been a very intense and competitive season,” team manager Wangila Simiyu said.
