Mombasa head coach Lewis Olaka has affirmed his squad that will play visitors to USIU on Saturday 23.
The coastal boys recorded a win the last time they played in the city, the win coming against Ngong RFC. On top of their agenda will be revenging a narrow 21-17 loss at home against the university boys, Mombasa giving away points in a match where they led in the first half and a better part of the second half.
Dzirro Peter comes in at front row in place of Sammy Baya who will not make the trip. Lazzaro Okello gets the nod to start ahead of Tyson Nyambok who drops to the bench. The final change comes in at eighth man with exeperienced Benjamin Erukan coming in for Peter Wanjala who takes a place in the bench.
Jesse Njagi will continue his fine run at scrum half, partnering with Ian Ademba who has been handed a start at five eighths.
Only one change has been effected to the backline which sees Gabriel Makatiani start on the right wing at the expense of Chrissant Ojwang.
Mombasa are placed seventh on 27 points, one point adrift of sixth placed Kisii and two off fifth placed MMUST. They will be looking to win their remaining fixtures while hoping that the teams on top of them drop points to qualify for the play offs.
