Oilers captain set for surgery, expected to miss remainder of the season


Menengai Oilers captain Harold Anduvate is set to miss the remainder of the 2019/20 season as he is scheduled to undergo a shoulder surgery.

Oilers Head Coach Gibson Weru says the forward might be out for an estimated period of three months. Anduvate’s likely return might be during the 2020 National 7s Circuit.

“The only injury concern after Christmas is Harold’s. He is supposed to undergo surgery anytime soon and he might be out for close to three months so he might not play again in the 15s  season,”  Weru told Scrummage.

“He injured his shoulder and it took us so long to identify the exact problem. It looked like a soft tissue injury but it kept on persisting and the doctors recommended surgery,” he further explained.

This means Clinton Odhiambo will continue leading the side as captain in the absence of Anduvate.

Oilers will be seeking to bounce back to winning ways having ended the year with a heavy loss to Kabras on matchday nine of the season.

They will welcome Mwamba RFC who are seeking to return to the playoffs zone having dropped out on matchday nine despite an 18-17 win over Homeboyz.

Both sides are tied at 24 points after nine matches.
