The Simbas XVs need to gather themselves after that devastating loss, but brilliant game by both sides.

We need to put a very strong show in Kampala ahead of the CAR Gold cup if we have any hopes of defeating Namibia this year. BTW, do you have any link about sables squad this season?

Nope, the Sables communication personnel people are very poor at disseminating information. They need a media manager. They could contact me to assist them. :P

Lilako recalled:

Good move. The old squad is been recalled one by one :D . As former Kabras coach (Bishop) advised, you cant replace a whole experienced squad during serious & demanding matches in the season.

Rumors has it that there was a group of senior players agitating for their rights (allowances). Knowing how the union works, I choose to agree.

JOB ALERT:

A job for the position of the S and C coach in the Kenyan team is available.

Apply if you fit the bill. If you are coming from a cold country, remember Kenya is on the Equator,

So, just carry open shoes and a t- shirt coz it's hot these sides of the Sahara. 23 - 30 degrees celcius. :)

All the best to all applicants.

All sports in Kenya are officially dead after the government slapped Sportpesa with a 35% taxation. In turn - Sportpesa decided to withdraw all its activities from

the Kenyan market effectively 1st Jan 2018. Such a stupid government of Uhuru Kenyatta :( . He should be kicked out in the coming elections and Raila Odinga

to take over.

Uruguay will fly to Africa to play two test matches against Namibia in November.
I think it would be a good opportunity to negotiate a game against Los Teros, and the Simbas can be measured by a Tier 2 rival.

That is an absolutely fantastic idea. Brazil are the only team the Simbas played last year in Macapa.

It would be fantastic to host Los Teros

Simbas might be in competing in cup of nations in November. Honestly, they have really struggled in the early stages of this season. They are fighting this season to avoid relegation which seems to be a rather scary reality.

But they could play Uruguay a week or 2 weeks before they travel. I hope someone from the Los Teros Uruguay management team is watching this, and can

organize a friendly.

Another rugby star murdered in Kenya. He was the best centre this season and was expected to feature for the Simbas soon.

Yes, he was the MVP for the just concluded 2016 -2017 Kenya Cup season and was the best player for KCB when they toured South Africa. He had already made the Simbas XVs training squad. So sad, we just lost a gem of a player.
