Two young Nondies players have been invited by Luxembourg Rugby club for a cultural exchange programme that will see them train and play for the overseas club for the next three months.
Nondies.co.ke reports that Samuel Imbwaga (17 years old) and Geoffrey Magoro (18 years old) will spend the next three months earning valuable rugby and social life experience at RCL.
“The two exciting Nondies prospects were selected as part of RCL’s annual cultural exchange programme and will play and mingle with players from several other countries including Sevens Rugby powerhouse Fiji.
The duo landed in Luxembourg safely Friday evening, and are geared up for the experience,” said Nondies.
RCL, founded in 1973, will cover the young turks’ accommodation, food and other necessary costs.
Samuel and Geoffrey will also have an opportunity to study at Michel Lucius school Luxembourg’s finest learning institutions during their stay.
The families of RCL players and members will host the boys, as they train and play with RCL’s under 18 side.
RCL president Fred Gabriel added that the club will provide boots, kit and other training equipment as it looks to boost its annual cultural exchange programme.
“The boys will be able to train and play with the RCL Under 18s squad. The team trains 2 or 3 times a week and play in the Belgian national first division most Saturday afternoons. Rugby boots, and playing equipment will be provided. The under 18 coaches are from
England, South Africa and Sweden. Danny Ligairi who visited Nondies a few weeks ago will oversee the training and provide individual support to the students if needed,” Fred Gabriel said.
