Ruby: Sierra Leone to compete in Kwesé Sports Sevens tournament

March 6, 2017 By Sahr  Morris jnr

President of Sierra Leone National Ruby Association Jeremiah Moshopeh Pratt has confirmed Sierra Leone’s participation at the inaugural Kwesé Sports Victoria Falls Sevens tournament in Zimbabwe

The tournament, which is expected to attract nine nations; host Zimbabwe, Namibia, Zambia, Sierra Leone Lesotho, Uganda, Nigeria, Botswana, Kenya, and Ghana , will run from March 18 to 19.

However, the tournament host, Zimbabwe Rugby Union (ZRU) are still waiting on the confirmation of Kenya, Uganda as well as Nigeria and Ghana.

According to Pratt, even though they have confirmed their participation with the ZRU, they were still in need of financial support to ensure their participation in the March 18 to 19 tournaments.

Already, the ZRU has settled for Victoria Falls Primary School as the venue for the tournament and the Elephant Hills Driving Range has been  earmarked as the future home of the tournament.

Sierra Leone National Rugby Association only gained recognition from the country’s National Sport Council and the Ministry of Sports in October, 2016 and are also an affiliate member of Confederation of Africa Rugby (CAR).
