Kenyatta university’s Blak Blad have revealed their squad set to kick start the season against Nakuru at the Suguta valley on Saturday 4 PM.
Coach Williams Motto believes the boys have worked hard in the short preseason and hopes they will do well on the road.
“I believe the boys have worked hard and earned the jersey,they have given their best in preparations despite the short pre-season,” he told the Scrummage.
” We have always come close whenever we play against Nakuru especially in the last three seasons . The first game of the season, especially after a long offseason, can go either way, it only depends on who will blink first and who will want it more. This might be the time for us to get the maximum points from Suguta Valley,” Motto added
In his squad, the forwards are led by Humphrey Litali, Edwin Mutoka and Collins Obure in the front row. Steve Odhiambo and Lutta Anda are the day’s locks while Dennis Opiyo and Sheldon Kahi will be flankers.
Ian Obukwa completes the pack at eighth man. Half-back duties are taken care of by Brian Wahinya and Allan Ominde. David Ochieng and Stormy Dickens occupy the midfield.
Last seasons top try scorer Archadius Khwesa runs on the blind wing while Allan Ominde is on the open wing. Full back duties are on Kelvin Gathu.
