Simon Muniafu starts for the Simbas against Senegal in Rugby Africa Gold Cup action at the RFUEA Ground on Saturday 15 July 2017.
The Impala Saracens lock missed last weekend’s 100-10 win over Tunisia after sustaining a knock in the team’s Gold Cup opener against Uganda three weeks ago and will partner captain Wilson Kopondo in the second row. George Nyambua drops to the bench while Oliver Mang’eni remains unavailable for this fixture.
Leo Seje retains his place at inside center, maintaining his midfield partnership with David Ambunya as Head Coach Jerome Paarwater maintains a largely unchanged side that will be out to register a second win on the trot in this encounter that kicks off at 2.00pm.
