Western Bulls coach Bram Shikanda has revealed his squad that will do duty against Nakuru RFC in the Enterprise Cup pre-quarters match at Nakuru Athletics Club on Saturday.
The coach has rotated the squad, handing Evin Kanyanya the Captaincy role for the clash. Kanyanya has been deployed on the blind flank while Robert Awich and Teddy Akala will hold the open flank and eighth-man role respectively.
Alvin Otieno and Collins Ogutu partner in the second row and the frontrow will have Erick Logedi, Kelvin Kipchumba and Willis Mwinamo.
Allan Kasiti will don the jersey number nine as Solomon Obiero comes in at number 10. Frank Mukaisi starts at fullback while Dennis Lukase and Powell Odongo will be in the midfield.
The wings will be manned by Nickson Nyandieka and Suleiman Odongo. Commenting on the selection, the coach said he decided to rest some of the regular starters in order to hand youngster some playtime.
“I have rested most of my players and given a chance to young guys to express themselves while the seniors who have started are meant to bring in the needed experience and balance,” he said.
