KCB have made four changes to their squad that will battle with Menengai Oilers in a Kenya Cup match scheduled for KCB Sports Club on Saturday.
Michael Wanjala starts on the bench while Peter Kilonzo is missing in the 23-man squad. Vincent Onyala and Jacob Ojee are also absent having been picked to represent the nation in the World 7s Series matches.
With all the four being backs, Samuel Asati gets the nod to start at scrum-half where he will partner with Johnstone Olindi who is set to start at fly-half for the second time in a row after missing out the Kenya 7s squad.
Levy Amunga is back to the squad to play as the inside centre while Brian Omondi has shifted to the outside in Kilonzo’s absence. Darwin Mukidza is joined in the back three by Mike Kimwele and Isaac Njoroge who will cover the wings.
The back row has Steve Wamai, Felix Ojoo and Davis Chenge. Francis Mwita and Oliver Mang’eni are in the second row. Oscar Sorano, Griffin Musila and Curtis Lilako will lead the pack.
Veteran Brian Nyikuli, Shaban Ahmed, George Maranga and Shaddon Munoko are some of the faces on the bench.
