Nigeria Rugby Federation explains team’s struggles in African Cup 7s

The Nigeria Rugby Football Federation has shed light on why the national team failed to make a significant impact in the ongoing African Cup 7s championship in Mauritius.

Competing at the Labourdonnais Stadium, the Nigerian team began the tournament with a promising 34-14 victory over Madagascar. However, their performance dipped in subsequent matches, suffering a 25-0 defeat to Kenya and a 24-5 loss to Mauritius, which led to their early exit from the championship.

“We’ve battled hard despite both captains being injured and the team still gelling together. Some newly joined players have shown promise, while others are still adapting. Onward and upward,” the Federation commented on the team’s performance.

The Federation’s statement highlights the challenges faced by the team, including injuries to key players and the integration of new members. Despite these setbacks, there are positive signs, with some new players showing potential.

As the championship progresses, it remains uncertain whether the Nigerian team will be able to participate in the second round. The Federation’s focus is on improving team cohesion and addressing the issues that affected their performance in Mauritius.
