Kenya Simbas head into residential camp this weekend as they intensify preparations for the four nations tournament in Hong Kong next month.

Kenya are scheduled to play Chile on November 10. They face Russia next on November 14 before concluding their tour with a tie against hosts Hong Kong.

Kenya are ranked 27 overall ahead of Chile who are 28th.

Russia and Hong Kong are ranked 20th and 22nd respectively.

Habimana said the build-up matches are meant to prepare the Simbas for next year’s rugby world cup qualifiers.

Frank Khalwale of Quins, Blak Bladas Levy Amunga, KCB half-back Michael Wanjala alongside Nakuruas fly-half Henry Ayah are meant to bolster depths in positions and create competition in the team.
