Simbas squad announced ahead of 2017 assignments

The Kenya Rugby Union has announced a 40 man Simbas squad for the 2017 international season.

The Simbas, now ranked 24th globally, have a busy calendar that starts with their Elgon Cup defense away to Uganda on 10 June, before playing the Rugby Cranes in the return leg a fortnight later, a result that doubles up as the opening round of the Africa Gold Cup where they also face fixtures against Tunisia, Senegal, Zimbabwe and Namibia. They will also play a two match test against Hong Kong in Nairobi in August.

“The squad has been selected based on merit, dedication, respect and hard work. The players selected are those who have stood up to be counted,” said Team Manager Wangila Simiyu.
