20/07/2013 FoRR fields a team at the Savannah 7s

Saturday July 20th saw the first Savannah 7s tournament run by African Exiles Rugby at Egham. The tournament was followed by a fun evening of live music. The Savannah 7s is the UK’s biggest African rugby tournament and festival celebrating sub-Saharan culture and they kindly adopted FoRR as their official charity. Invited to enter a team, Friends of Rwandan Rugby fielded eleven willing volunteers who kindly brushed off their boots to have a run around and promote the charity. Although most players had never met each other prior to the event it was inspiring how quickly a team ethos developed. Remarkably the team reached the semi-final of the plate.  The fundraising and awareness raising aspects of the event capped off a tremendous day and huge thanks must go to all of the additional volunteers that manned the stall and contributed to the atmosphere on the day.
