Bush Mwale on Tuesday joined the Kenya 7s squad in Spain for inter-regional series, Madrid 7s replacing Andrew Amonde.

Amonde pulled out due to illness forcing head coach Innocent ‘Namcos’ Simiyu to replace him with the Homeboyz star, Raga House understands.

Bush Mwale, who has played 166 matches at the HSBC World Sevens Series scoring 185 points from 37 tries, had been named as a non-travelling sub alongside Alvin Marube and Levy Amunga.
