According to club’s official portal, Mwamba’s Billy Odhiambo will have his first taste of this season’s Kenya Cup action against his former side Strathmore Leos but must contend with a place on the bench.
Mwambarugby.com reports that Patrick Ruhiu, Joel Inzuga and Eugene Sudi earn their starting slots after missing a number of matches due to various reasons.
Head Coach Kevin Wambua has named Deus Mudaki, Sudi and Brian Otieno as the day’s starting front row and will be supported by Stephen Sikuta and Stephen Wang’ondu in the second row.
The indefatigable trio of Collins Injera, Louis Kisia and Tony Owuor will run out as the starting back row.
Sitting at the bottom of the table with relegation beckoning, Leos head coach John Mbai has preferred Matoka Matoka and Giddy Makumi as the day’s half-backs while second five-eighth will be Wiseman Aganya and Omedo Richard at centre.
Having lost Elkeans Musonye and George Orembo to Impala, Branabas Owuor starts at open-side and Walter Oteku at fullback.
Lucas Opal, Abdi Mohammed, John Juma and Arnold Mwita will hope to make an impact from the bench.
Leos will be seeking their first win of the season when the host Mwamba RFC who have won two matches and sit 7th with 12 points just three off Nakuru who occupy the last playoff slot.
