Mombasa Driftwood 7s Postponed!!

Fans who were eagerly waiting for the Safaricom Sevens Series, the Driftwood have to look for something else to do this weekend.
Kenya Rugby Union(KRU) regrets to announce the cancellation of the third leg of the Safaricom Sevens Series, the Driftwood Sevens, which was scheduled to take place at the Mombasa Sports Club on 24th and 25th August 2013.The decision to cancel the tournament has been forced upon the Kenya Rugby Union by Mombasa RFC who have continued to be in breach of an existing sponsorship agreement between us, the KRU and East Africa Breweries Limited. Apparently, Rugby Driftwoods 7s drifts away after Kenya Rugby Union cancelled  the third round due to co-sponsor issues. The game was to be the 3rd round of the local 7s circuit. These news were not received well on social media as many rugby fans were offended for the last-minute postponement.They expressed their views about this postponement on twitter.Here is a press release of Kenya Rugby Union’s chairman confirming the postponement of the game.

We regret to announce the postponement of the K.R.U Safaricom Driftwood Sevens which was slated to take place this weekend due to unavoidable circumstances.The K.R.U and the main sponsor, Safaricom will announce new dates for the tourney, dates convenient to all stakeholders.On behalf of the K.R.U, I offer my sincere apologies to everyone, particularly the teams that had prepared themselves and started the journey down to Mombasa.
We can only expect that Driftwood will eventually take place even after this postponement.
