The Kenya Simbas have released the squad that will face Zimbambe in their fourth Rugby Africa Gold Cup match at the Hartsfield Stadium in Bulawayo on Saturday July 22,2017.
KCB's Jacob Ojee has been included in the starting lineup after being declared fit to play. There were concerns over his fitness when he was substituted the first half of last weekend’s clash against Senegal but has since recovered sufficiently to return to the team.
Bramwell Mayaka has also been reinstated into the team will cover the front row in place of Dennis Karani who is out of the squad due to academic commitments.
Meanwhile, lock Oliver Mang’eni will link up with the side for the Namibia clash. Mang’eni missed the last two fixtures against Tunisia and Senegal due to personal and work commitments.
