Kenya Simbas head coach Ian Snook has named the team that will face off with the Zimbabwe Sables in the Africa Gold Cup on Saturday.
The team was named on Thursday morning at RFUEA Grounds as the Simbas aim for a second straight victory in the competition.
Following Namibia’s emphatic start to the season, the Simbas will have to keep winning to ensure their rivals stay in close range.

Darwin Mukidza continues to roam the back line and will this time move from fly half to inside centre. Isaac Adimo will take the number 10 jersey.

Zimbabwe and Moroccopicked 2 points from their 23-23 draw in Harare while both Uganda and Tunisia are yet to pick a point.
