Captain of the Nigeria Rugby National team, also known as Black Stallions, Azeez Oladipo, has assured Nigerians that they are going to Zambia for the Rugby Africa Cup 1C with the primary aim of moving to the next level which is the 1B category in Africa.

Speaking before their departure, Azeez thanked the Nigeria Rugby Football Federation for going the extra mile to ensure that the team was given adequate preparation weeks before the tournament promising that the boys would repay the faith reposed in them through qualification.

It would be recalled that the team led by Head Coach, Fabian Juries with 3 officials of the federation departed for Zambia on Monday aboard a Kenya airline for a 1 week high-altitude conditioning which is expected to put them in the right condition for the 4 day event featuring Zambia, Zimbabwe and Nigeria.

He pointed out that the team had not gotten its acts together in terms of preparation as it has been hampered by finance and necessary logistics which was normal for most of the federations except for football

He thanked individuals, well-meaning members of the federation and CMB Building Maintenance & Investment Company Limited for digging deep and making financial sacrifices just to ensure that the team was given all the needed encouragement and training for a good outing in Zambia.
