Kenya Simbas lost their fourth Currie Cup match after going down 45-33 to Boland Cavaliers at the Boland Stadium, Wellington, South Africa on Saturday.

Strathmore Leos star Andrew Motoka and Kabras Sugar’s Derrick Ashiundu scored two tries each while Beldad Ogeta and Thomas Okeyo managed a try apiece for the Simbas.

Kenya have now played five matches where they have won only one and lost four.

Simbas will now meet SWD Eagles on May 28 at City Park Stadium, Athlone before heading back home to Nairobi.

Kenya will make history next month when they host two Currie Cup Division One matches in Nairobi.

Simbas will take on Leopards on June 4 before meeting Eastern Province Elephants on June 11 at the RFUEA ground.

 The 2022 Currie Cup Division One is the 84th edition. It is the second tier, running alongside the 2022 Currie Cup Premier Division.

Kenya Simbas and Zimbabwe Goshawks are using the Currie Cup to prepare for the Africa Rugby qualifying tournament to the 2023 Rugby World Cup.

The qualifier will take place in the French cities of Marseille and Aixen from July 1 to 10 this year.
