A combined Blue Bulls and TUKS side from South Africa is among three foreign teams set to feature in the Christie Sevens, the final leg of Stanbic Bank National Sevens Series, due this weekend at the RFUEA Grounds, Nairobi.

Also expected are Emerging Cranes Sevens and Pirates from Uganda, who have already been pooled alongside Kenyan clubs.

Pirates have been handed top seed Mwamba, who are fresh from winning Dala Sevens last weekend, in Pool “A”. The pool also has Christie Sevens defending champions Kabras Sugar and the University of Nairobi Mean Machine.

Blue Bulls and TUKS will take on Series leaders Homeboyz and Nakuru, who are the only sides to have won events this season, in Pool “B”. The group also has Menengai Oilers.

Homeboyz, who top the Series standings with 100 points, are chasing their fourth win this season, having bagged Prinsloo, Sepetuka and Kabeberi Sevens. They finished fourth at Driftwood and second at Dala Sevens.

Emerging Cranes face Impala Saracens, hosts Kenya Harlequin and Northern Suburbs in Pool “C” while Kenya Commercial Bank, Nondescripts, Kisii and Strathmore Leos make up Pool “D”.
