Five players are in line for their full test debuts as the Simbas squad for Saturday’s Tatu City Series clash against Germany.
“These players, Philip Ikambili, Oscar Simiyu, Bram Mayaka, George Nyambua and Leo Seje Owade have upped their game and proved worthy of selection to the squad,” said Team Manager Simiyu Wangila in Nairobi on Thursday.
Biko Adema returns to the Simbas fold after close to a decade and will start at flyhalf.
