Homeboyz youngster receives a late Kenya Simbas call up

Homeboyz Rugby rookie William Diffu has received a late Kenya Simbas call up for the upcoming 2018 international season. 
His inclusion brings the total number of Homeboyz players in the national 15s fold to eight,joining the likes of Tony Onyango,Zeden Marrow,Patrick Ouko, Philip Ikambili, Dalmus Chituyi, Mohammed Omollo and Max Kang’eri.
With Xavier Kipng’etich, Edmund Anya and Zeden Marrow having been summoned earlier, Diffu’s inclusion  means that the current Kenya 15s set up has up to four members from the National U20 side Chipu.
The Laiser Hill Academy alumnus will however not be part of the side that has departed for Kampala to honour the Elgon Cup first leg tie against Uganda Rugby Cranes on Saturday.
After Saturday’s Elgon Cup duel, the side could head to South Africa for camping as well as feature in some build up matches with South African sides before they kick start their 2018 Africa Gold Cup campaign away to Morocco on 23 June.
