A look at women's rugby on the global stage

The women of the Chicago Sirens Women's Rugby Club are heading to Nairobi, Kenya, and they are making history while doing it. They are the first team outside of Africa to receive an invitation to participate in the Safaricom Sevens Tournament, an invitation-only competition, that will take place in Nairobi next year. Ron Bukusi, Head Coach of the Chicago Sirens, and Becky Roberts, a player for the team and vice president of Chicago Rugby Club, discuss their participation in the tournament and the state of women's rugby in Kenya.
