Kenya is expecting a tough return leg at home against Zambia in the rugby Victoria Cup on Saturday.

“Zambia’s national 15s team arrived in Nairobi yesterday morning. We want to rally behind Kenya and hope fans will give the voice required,” Kenya Rugby Union (KRU) chairman Oduor Gangla (pictured) said on Tuesday.

Zambian captain Edward Mumba said Zambia will manage to seal its placemong Africa’s best teams saying: “We have trained hard and have to stay focused. But it will be hard against Kenya.”

Zambia lost two matches, first to Kenya 43-23 in July and to Uganda 38-22 last weekend during the Victoria Cup, which features Uganda, Kenya, Zimbabwe and Zambia in a double round-robin format.
