The new Kenya Simbas head coach Ian Snook has been appointed on a two-year contract, Raga House learns.

Kenya Rugby Union chairman Richard Omwela, on the sidelines of the 2018 AGM, told Raga House that the New Zealander will be in Kenya for a period of two years.

Omwela says Snook has been given a target of qualifying for the 2019 World Cup to be held in Japan.

The same applies to his assistant Murray Roulston whom he will arrive alongside in the first week of April.

“He is coming for two years and the deliverables are qualifying for the 2019 World Cup. That’s all we want,” said Omwela.

Snook’s appointment was announced on Monday by KRU, months after they parted ways with former coach South African Jerome Paarwater.

 Kenya will play Uganda, Morocco, Tunisia, Zimbabwe and Namibia in the African qualifiers for the World Cup with the winner set to qualify for the global repechage.
