was founded in April 2013 when George Barbour brought together player representatives with Coach David Nolan and Base Titanium' Paul Thompson. There had been an interest in rugby in Ukunda prior to this, largely due to the annual Touch Tournament on Diani Beach. David began regular coaching sessions on the public grounds in Ukunda and later at the Ukunda Showground, now the official home ground.
