RUGBY: NRFF TO USE HOME-BASED PLAYERS
Nigeria Rugby Football Federation, NRFF has decided to field domestic players in the forthcoming Africa Bronze Cup Championship slated for Cameroon in May.
NRFF added that henceforth home-based stars would form the bulk of the country’s squad to other international engagements.
The federation said the move would also help in developing the game at the grassroots level, adding that Rugby Africa has announced new dates for the Africa Bronze Cup, Guardian reports.
To vie for the cup alongside Nigeria, who were runners at the 2016’s Division 1C, are Algeria and Cameroun, both retuning to the competition after missing the 2016 edition.
The rugby body explained that the tier three event, now known as ‘Bronze Cup,’ will involve six teams, divided into two groups, North and South, with Nigeria the seeded team in the North group.6
