Kenya Simbas Travelling squad

http://ragahouse.com/news/item/kenya-sq ... hage-named

From this squad, my starting 15 would be

1. Moses Amusala - KCB
2. Phillip Ikambili - Homeboyz RFC
3. Hillary Mwanjilwa - Kabras RFC
4. Oliver Mangeni - KCB
5. Simon Muniafu - Decazeville ( France)
6. Elkeans Musonye - Strathmore R.F.C
7. Andrew Amonde - KCB
8. Joshua Chisanga - Orkan Porchazeuw (Poland)
9. Samson Onsomu - Impala
10. Sammy Oliech - Impala
11. William Ambaka - Kenya Harlequins
12. Leo Seje - Impala
13. Peter Kilonzo - KCB
14. Darwin Mukidza - KCB
15. William Reeve/Tony Onyango - Kenya Harlequins and Homeboyz respectively.

Im guessing this could be the probable team, but as I said, I honestly think we didn't have enough prep. Hong Kong are clear favourites to go through according to my calculations. We also have a challenge in the 10 position as none listed are natural fly- halfs. In all respect to the coaching team of Murray Roulston and Ian Snook, I admire them as good coaches and their experience, but i particularly think they have absolutely no clue what they are doing. Collins injera is an extremely good player, but he thrives in space, he shouldn't be on this list. He will basically be helpless in the 15 man code. The same goes to Nelson Oyoo, I highly doubt they will have any impact on the squad, but anyway, maybe im wrong. All the best to the Simbas in Bucharest and Marseille. :)

I wonder if this will still happen


Yes it will happen, they are on their way to Romania. The union went live on instagram showing them in the bus headed to the airport at around 5.30pm kenyan time.

This site called kahawatungu is a gutter press site amz haha :lol: , let me just clarify a few things. The money requested by the union was for holding camps and paying player salaries and allowances, but not for travel and accomodation. WR caters for that. :lol:

Hmm i see that, I expect the kenyan scrum to ice skate backwards the whole game, just hoping the no 8 is fast enough to retrieve the ball at the back of the scrum or he will just get ran over.

They weren’t getting test caps for the game anyways because it’s not the Oaks. Might as well test out who you have and see who stands out against quality opposition.

Highlights:



Oaks had a very good first half when they enjoyed most of the possession and the backline moved very well despite facing fast opposition. After the break , since the number of subs was unlimited, the match become hectic and Kenya kept Romania A in its own half for a while. All Romanian players entered the pitch and at the end some were in strange position, like Radoi at blindside and Calafeteanu on the wing. :lol:

I expected more physicality from Kenya because they have some big units but in first half their pack was very soft.
