In preparation for the highly-anticipated Victoria Cup title decider against Uganda on November 5, 2023, the Kenya Simbas have made three significant changes to their squad.

Reinhard Mwalati, Wilhite Mususi, and Walter Okoth are the three notable additions, with Mwalati and Okoth set to make their test debuts in this crucial fixture.

Reinhard Mwalati, a member of the victorious Kenya U20 squad that claimed the 2021 Rugby Africa U20 Barthes Trophy, will step in as the openside flank in his test debut, replacing Elkeans Musonye in the back row. The back row also features skipper George Nyambua as the blindside and Jeanson Misoga at number eight.
