Kenya Rugby Union on Tuesday afternoon announced the Simbas Squad to play Uganda for the Elgon Cup at the Mamboleo showgrounds in Kisumu this Saturday.
The team which features only 7 senior players will be captained by KCB Center Peter Kilonzo who will be deputized by Resolution Impala Saracens Elkeans Musonye.

Capped Samson Onsamu will be pairing with Chipu’s Dominic Coulson in the halfback positions in one of the interesting youthful inclusions of the Simbas for the Elgon Cup while captain Kilonzo will also pair up with 19 year old John Okoth in the midfield, with Isaac Njoroge has been drafted at fullback.
In another youth and experience positional balance, Saracens Billy Odhiambo will be flying on one wing with Geofrey Okwach on the other.
Kenya have won the Elgon Cup on the last three attempts and will look to keep the trophy at home, for the first leg at least this Saturday against the Uganda Cranes in a game which will kick off at 4:00pm at the Mamboleo Showgrounds.
