“We are very confident that this final squad of 23 players will do the job this weekend. The changes in the squad are designed to build team cohesion and allow them to gel. We want to see how the different options we have perform as well as how they absorb the pressure as we build a formidable squad for the Rugby World Cup qualifiers in August,”

“This is by no means the final squad for the qualifiers but it gives us a chance to see more players show case what they can do before we settle for the final 26 players.’’ concluded Oloo.
