In Brief: Koupreys ready for Laos

PHNOM PENH - Cambodia's "Koupreys" went through a final intense training session Thursday night at their training facility in the Stung Meanchey district as they prepared for Saturday's rugby encounter against the Laos national team. "We feel good," said prop Chro Kim Seang. "Now each of us need to start thinking about what we have to do on Saturday. It will be a hard match, but I think we will be ready." The Koupreys received some good news Thursday on the condition of ailing prop Ralph McMillan. "Ralphie says he feels better, and is good to go on Saturday," stated Kouprey head coach Peter Maley. Maley also announced that center Vannak Vireak has been appointed team captain for Saturday's match at 4pm at the Old Stadium.
