Kenya under 20 side will take on Impala in a warm-up match on Monday, February 19, 2018, at Impala Club.
According to a statement released by KRU, the game will be a Monday night fixture as the side prepares for the Barthes Cup set for March in Namibia.
“Monday night’s fixture is part of our preparations for next month’s Rugby Africa U20 South Championships in Windhoek, Namibia.
