Our Senior Men National Team, the Amawheelaboys, are all set to travel to Thailand in 10 days time to take part in a Tri Nations Tournament against Thailand and New Zealand.

The tour will be the last opportunity our squad will get to fully prepare for the 2020 Paralympic Qualifiers, set to take place in January 2020.

The road to the 2020 Tokyo Paralympics is a daunting one for all teams in Africa, as there is only one place allocated to Africa for qualification to the Paralympics.

South Africa has slipped down the rankings in Africa in recent times, but the current squad is determined to regain their number one spot from their close rivals and friends Morocco.

Thailand have had the beating of the Amawheelaboys in recent years, when we have played them at the Fazza Tournament in Dubai, so they will provide excellent opposition for the Amawheelaboys in preparation.

The New Zealand RollerBlacks, will be out for revenge against us as a result of being comprehensively beaten by the Amawheelaboys during their tour to South Africa in 2016. We are expecting a tougher challenge this time round though.
