HONG KONG, Hong Kong- The Kenya Simbas have made six changes to the squad ahead of their final match in the Regal Hotels Cup of Nations against hosts Hong Kong on Saturday November 18.

Sam Onsomu, Nato Simiyu, George Nyambua and David Ambunya, who all came on from the bench have been handed starts alongside Jacob Ojee and Tony Onyango who were rested on Tuesday.

There is also a return for Eric Kerre who has shrugged off the effects of a knock in the opening fixture against Chile to start this tie off the bench.

Martin Owilah, deployed against Russia starts this tie in the number eight position in the absence of Newcastle Falcons back-row Joshua Chisanga, with Davis Chenge slotting into the open-side flank.

Peter Kilonzo, Joshua Chisanga (knee injury) and Alex Olaba are rested.
