Test rugby Friendly



Venue: Stade du TOEC, Toulouse,


Both teams are in the same Division of the Africa Cup.They meet again in early July in Kampala, Uganda in Division 1B. The winner is promoted to the elite division for 2016.

All the players from both teams are based in France, and especially in the south thus the choice of Toulouse. In a lot of cases the players have never met before let along played together. This will be an opportunity for combinations to be tested and for players to put themselves forward for selection in the July teams. Local players back in Africa were not considered mainly because of visa problems.
