In Summary

  • Win over West Africans will take Paawater’s men to top of six-team championship.
  • For the Lions of Teranga, they badly need a win to secure their place in Gold Cup and a loss in today’s tie will mean that they’ll be relegated back to Silver Cup next year.

Kenya Simbas will be looking to build on their record-setting 100-10 win over Tunisia last weekend when they take on Senegal on Saturday in Africa Gold Cup match at RFUEA grounds, Nairobi, from 2pm.

Simbas swept away a hapless Tunisian side last weekend, running in 15 tries and conceding two. At the same time, Senegal were being shredded to pieces by Namibia in Windhoek, where they lost 95-0.

The two teams will approach Saturday’s match with different goals. A win for Kenya will push them to the summit of the six-team championship, at least for a week.

For the Lions of Teranga, they badly need a win to secure their place in Gold Cup and a loss in today’s tie will mean that they’ll be relegated back to Silver Cup next year.

Kenya’s head coach Jerome Paarwater has made one change to last week’s team, bringing in Impala Saracen’s Simon Muniafu in the second row in place of George Nyambua.

Muniafu will partner skipper Wilson K’Opondo in the boiler room. K’Opondo has been impressive in the two Tests he has played and his absence was noticeable in the two-leg Elgon Cup match against Uganda.
