Kenyan team off to United States for Rugby Sevens World Cup

Meet USA Women's Eagles 7's Rugby Team At Oakland Fundraising Party Before Rugby World Cup Sevens 2018

"We have seen, especially in recent tournaments, that literally any team can beat any other at this level".

Commenting on his squad selection ahead of the tournament in San Francisco, Simiyu believes it is the best side ever and capable of beating any team.

Head coach Innocent Simiyu has opted to wrap his team on the steel of experience and called up four players from the team that competed at the 2014 World Cup in Moscow. "The first couple of sessions had the lungs burning and the legs pumping and it was tough following our long flight from South Africa, but we have some confidence from the HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series win".

Twenty four men's and 16 women's teams will square it out in a new tournament format that will see the victor have to beat every team they face in order to be crowned winners.

The opening match against Ireland or Chile must set the momentum for the remainder of the weekend, Snyman said.

Semi Radradra made the cut for the World Cup.

Sheriff: 8 people dead after Missouri Ride the Ducks boat accident
Suzanne Smagala-Potts said the company recently acquired the vessel that was involved in the incident. The vessel submerged and Nielsen said he believed it had been found underwater.

"The tournament structure is different, but exciting, and we are eager to get out there and get things started".

"The psychological impact of the last two matches [in Paris] is definitely something we can take into this tournament".

Zimbabwe's national Sevens Rugby side will have to overcome former champions Wales in an initial knock-out preliminary round to enter the main draw of the 2018 Rugby World Cup Sevens to be played at the iconic AT&T Park in in San Francisco, United States.

The Russians are rated among the top five teams in the world, while South Africa are just outside the top ten. "The girls are playing the way we want them to play".

"We are certainly not the favourites", Pienaar said.

He's the "King of Sevens" and Hong Kong was his playground, so it comes as no surprise that of the two Rugby World Cup Sevens held in the territory, Waisale Serevi captained Fiji to victory in both. "We have worked hard over the last couple of months and came to San Francisco with some very clear objectives in mind". I can remember we were warming up and I saw in the crowd one of the Fiji supporters with a sign saying "Take it home Fiji".
