The return of the Tuskers in nothing more than a PR gimmick as if it is difficult enough to get matches for our own National XV, who will we get to play the Tuskers? And how many times will they play in a year? And what do we want to achieve with the Tuskers? We are yet to create a competitive enough "provincial" competition so why go over the National teams, who are not strong enough anyway? Do we have any idea really on how we are to improve our rugby and qualify for a Rugby World Cup? Do we honestly believe that by simply playing more rugby our rugby will get better? But I forget, we believe in playing hard and with psych! Even our grassroots structure is more about quantity than quality. And we get shocked when national players make basic errors, but they are the best we have, no doubt. And when we can't teach them, we choose others we think will be better. I'm digressing.
It started out with the old committee fighting sale of t-shirts, and claiming they were the only ones allowed to do anything with the word Rugby in this country. Well, it is slowly going to become clear exactly what the union can control, and cannot control. The so-called mandate they have does not define this, nor do they specify it, but use it as a blanket authority to use a name, that in all intents and purposes is an English word!
Initially I thought a two-year term was too short for someone to make a mark in Kenyan Rugby. Never have I been so wrong. Do enjoy the remainder of your week.
