Kenya Rugby Union says they are doing everything possible to have Kenya Simbas players back in training after a week of go-slow.

The Simbas did not train the whole of this week due to unpaid allowances but Union CEO Sylvia Kamau saying they are working round the clock to solve the issue.

“We are doing everything possible to pay their allowances. We also appeal to the government to help us out. If we don’t pay them today (Friday) they will probably not train over the weekend.”

Kamau says they are yet to pay September and October allowances but August allowances have been sorted out.

In exactly one month, Kenya Simbas will kick-off the 2019 Rugby World Cup repechage against Canada in France. Other matches will be against Hong Kong and Germany with the winner of the round-robin tournament set to head to Japan 2019 as the 20th team. 

All players set to travel to Marseille in November went for their visas at the French Embassy in Nairobi on Thursday. 30 players and management will travel to France according to Ms.Kamau.
