    Fom told journalists that it will not be business as usual when the Black Stallions file out to represent Nigeria as he called for understanding.

    According to him "This is a developing nation in rugby, this is a developing national  team. At our very worst we are good and at our best, we can be dynamic"

    "Nigerians should be patient with us, we hope to always churn out good results as we have always done"

    Speaking before their departure for Johannesburg aboard a Kenyan Airways flight on Sunday for a 5 day training exercise before the competition slated for the 14th and 15th of November, the NRFF president thanked the Director General of the National Sports Commission, Dr Alhassan Yakmut for giving the federation an audience to discuss their plans and programs after which he promised to be fully supportive at every point in time.

    He also thanked CMB Building Maintenance & Inv Co. Ltd for their unflinching supports in ensuring the availability of funds for the federation, which has in no small way helped them in preparing the team for international engagements.

    He concluded by urging Nigerians to keep supporting, believing and praying for the team as they compete against Zambia, Uganda and Zimbabwe in group B in their quest to qualify for the 2016 Olympics in Rio.
