Shujaa players join Simbas ahead of Repechage

Top four Shujaa players, the national Rugby sevens team have joined their Simbas, the national 15-a-side team ahead of 2019 Rugby World Cup Repechage tournament that will be staged in France in November.

Former sevens captain Andrew Amonde will lead Nelson Oyoo, Sammy Oliech and Dennis Ombach in the Ian Snook squad.

Amonde was part of the squad that came close to qualifying for the World Cup in 2015 and he returns to the squad which already has Willy Ambaka who has gathered two caps after playing against Tunisia and Namibia in the Rugby Africa Gold Cup.

If all five of the Shujaa players make it to the traveling party to France, then the incoming National Sevens head coach will have a bit of a headache with the new season of the shorter version of the game kicking off on November 30 with the Dubai 7s.
