Joshua Chisanga has been ruled out of Saturday’s final Regal Hotels Cup of Nations clash against hosts Hong Kong. The number eight limped off early in the Simbas 10-31 loss to Russia at the Kings Park Sports Ground on Tuesday.
Confirming the news, Simbas Head Coach Jerome Paarwater said, “Joshua will be out on Saturday…this is a big blow for us. .his knee doesn’t look too good and he may be out for a while. It’s unfortunate to lose him but we are fortunate enough not to have too many injuries.This boils down to how we have managed the squad and used the guys off the bench.”
Saturday’s meeting will be the third between the two sides this year, the previous two played in Nairobi in August ending in a19-19 draw and a 43-34 win for Hong Kong.
