Nakuru name squad for KCB clash


Nakuru have named the squad that will take on Defending champions KCB at the NAC Grounds or the Suguta Valley as they seek to avenge a 50-13 loss at the KCB sports club in November.

Former Mwamba man Wycliffe Muema gets his fourth start of the season, starting ahead of Felix Omondi who will start from the bench. Youngster Emmanuel Mboya continues his fine form at hooker as Ezekiel Waitere takes roles at tighthead.

Thomas Okeyo will get his debut, partnering an evergreen Philip Owuor to provide the extra push. Okeyo gets his chance in the absence of former Kisii man Amos Obae who has been ruled out of the clash due to family commitments.

Kelvin Kabole who had to be walked out with an injury after a collision with Chisanga at the Jamhuri grounds has recovered in time to face the bankers. His defensive qualities will be needed all day to contain the rampant and hard running champions. Cassius Omolo starts at openside as he takes over skipper duties from Oscar Ouma. Edwin Makori completes the first eight.

Jenkins Kipruto who has been key for Wanyore this season continues his partnership with youngster Fredrick Odongo at half-back. Oscar Ouma will partner a fast-growing and scary proposition John Okoth who has been on an upward trajectory this season, dethroning Brian Kimani the No.13 jersey.

Okoth’s ability to break the first line of defense with incisive runs has taken a big load off Ouma’s shoulders and put him in the path to become great in the green jersey.

Kenya sevens international Nelson Oyoo returns to the squad after a spell with Shujaa, taking charge of the right-wing while Hannington Wabwire who is yet to make a mark in the longer version of the game takes the left. Collins Onyango will take up full-back duties from Duncan Abuyeka.
