Kenya Harlequins boss Charles Cardovillis has made two changes to his starting squad ahead of the Kenya Cup match pitting Mean Machine set for UoN Grounds on Saturday.
Paul Kioko and Michael Onsando have been replaced by Melvin Thairu and Tony Mutai. Thairu who will be playing against his former employer’s Machine starts in the front row alongside Brian Obwaya and Frank Kalwale.
Mutai joins Hilary Baraza in the second row as Patrice Agunda, Herman Humwa and skipper Peter Misango start in the back row.
The backline is unchanged with Dominic Osino and Eden Agero being entrusted once again for the halfback roles. Aluda Beda is on the left wing, Iddi Kakai takes the right wing role while Lyle Asiligwa is the fullback.
David Ambunya and Alex Olaba have been handed midfield duties. Scott Olouch once again has been named among the replacements.
Quins head to this match fresh from a win against Nakuru RFC at RFUEA Grounds last weekend.
