Team Manager Simiyu Wangila,speaking with Kenya Rugby after the team’s training in Nairobi on Saturday,said,”Lilako returns to the squad on merit. He has worked hard at club level,and has been an intergal part of his team’s league and cup double this season. ”
Lilako, a frontrow mainstay for the Simbas over the past six years was initially omitted from the 36 man squad and also missed last weekend’s 29-30 home loss to Germany. He was last in action for the Simbas during the 34-10 win over Hong Kong in Nairobi in August 2016.
He will be in contention to make the travelling party to Kampala.
