NAIROBI, Kenya, June 7 – KCB RFC Fly-Half Darwin Mukidza will skipper the Kenya Simbas in Saturday’s Elgon Cup first leg clash away to Uganda in the absence of regular Wilson Kopondo who sits out through a shoulder injury.

Making the squad of 23 named by head coach Jerome Paarwater on Wednesday is Newcastle Falcons back-row Joshua Chisanga.

Chisanga returns for the first time since sealing the move to English Premiership side that saw him miss 2016 internationals as well as 2017 opening match against Germany in May.

Moses Amusala, Peter Karai and Dennis Karani maintain their position in the forwards as Simon Muniafu and Oliver Mangeni  set to pair at lock for once against Uganda.

Davies Chenge, Eric Kerre and Martin Owila are the trip’s back-rows, Biko Adema and Samson Onsomu go as half-backs while Jacob Ojee, Patrice Agunda, David Ambunya, Mukidza and Tony Onyango making the entire back-line.
