Kenya Simbas head coach Jerome Paarwaters has made two changes to his starting squad ahead of the Zimbabwe Goshawks match scheduled for Nakuru Athletic Club on Saturday at 4:00 East African Time.
The two changes come in in the backline where Jone Kubu who did not travel to South Africa enters the starting squad and will don jersey 10 while Brian Wahinya drops to the bench.
The second change is on the left wing where Joel Inzuga shifts to the midfield pushing Walter Okoth out of the squad while Beldad Ogeta who was impactful off the bench against Namibia returns to play on the right wing.
Ntabeni Dukisa stays at fullback, Alfred Orege is on the left wing and Samuel Asati is the scrum-half.
The pack is unchanged with Ephraim Oduor, Griffin Musila and Hillary Mwanjilwa in the front row, Brian Juma and Hilary Odhiambo in the second row, George Nyambua, Brian Ndirangu and Jeanson Musoga in the back row.
Eugene Sifuna who missed the South African trip due to school commitments has joined the reserves as the hooker while Wilhite Mususi, Bryceson Adaka and Lameck Ambetsa have also been handed a place in the 23-man squad.
The Simbas lost 22-21 against the Goshawks last year and will be keen to get better off the side this weekend.
