Rugby unites kids from different backgrounds

TWENTY-FIVE boys from the largest urban slum in Africa played a rugby tournament at Henley Rugby Club.

TWENTY-FIVE boys from the largest urban slum in Africa played a rugby tournament at Henley Rugby Club.

They belong to the Shamas Rugby Foundation in Nairobi, which helps disadvantaged children through rugby. The tourists were hosted by pupils and staff at Moulsford Prep School for the duration of their 10-day tour, which included four rugby tournaments and trips to London and Oxford. They also watched a Premiership match.

The Dry Leas tournament was hosted by the Henley Hawks and also included boys from Wallingford Rugby Club. It was a wonderful spectacle of the unique spirit of rugby with 80 boys giving their all in an unparalleled display of sportsmanship, respect and mutual enjoyment despite some appalling conditions. Well done to all.
