Kenya Simbas backed to qualify for 2019 World Cup

Kenya Rugby Union media and communications manager Michael Kwambo believes that Kenya’s National 15s side, Simbas have the potential to qualify for the 2019 Rugby World Cup scheduled for Japan. 
For the World Cup qualifiers, Simbas begin their quest with an away tie against Morocco at COC Rugby on Saturday 23 June and Kwambo reckons that the squad assembled is full of depth and one that possesses vast talent.
He is quoted by KweséESPN as saying: “The Simbas squad assembled is full of quality and depth, with a lot of exciting talent across the board. It is definitely one that can challenge for World Cup qualification.”
“This year’s Rugby Africa Gold Cup is as open as they come; all the teams are putting in top-notch preparations. The long and short of it, every team is a threat.”
“There are a couple of lads that coach Snook called up to the squad such as former U20 internationals Malcom Onsando, Eddie Anya and Xavier Bett, all with the ability to fulfil their potential in the Simbas colours, while Leo Seje, who had trials with the Melbourne Rebels a few years back, will certainly be key to the team’s ambitions going forward,” he concluded.
