Kenya Simbas anticipate a ‘physical battle’ against Tunisia

Kenya Simbas head coach Ian Snook says that Saturday’s Africa Gold Cup encounter against Tunisia at Nairobi’s RFUEA ground will be physical.

Simbas head to Saturday’s clash on the backdrop of three successive wins while the North Africans managed a surprise win over Zimbabwe coupled with two heavy losses against log leaders Namibia and Uganda and the New Zealander says that his side must give 100 percent.

“I know they beat Zimbabwe and Zimbabwe ran us close. I have seen their other results and watched their games so I know it will be a physical game which will take the normal 100% effort from the boys,” he is quoted by the Kenya Rugby Union. “Tunisia have been in town all week so will have had plenty of time to fine-tune things and be well prepared.”

With this year’s Gold Cup tournament acting as a qualifier to the Japan 2019 World Cup,a win for Snook’s charges will enhance their chances of securing historic qualification.
