Driftwood 7s Pool D starting line ups

Nondies 7s welcome back Oscar Dennis for the first time since 2017 Driftwood 7s. He however played against Kenya Harlequin in the Kenya Cup who he is set to face in Mombasa on Saturday August 25, 2018. 
Dennis, who has led Nondies to Cup quarters every time he has played, broke his collarbone during the 2017 edition that ruled him out for the rest of the season but his return is a major boost to the Nondies side that had a good outing in Sepetuka 7s. 

Marvin Sumba will captain Nondies with Fidel Oloo, Peter Lugano, Benjamin Marshall, Moses Begi and Mark Ongayo also making the squad.

Kenya Harlequins have Kenya Sevens halfback Eden Agero back to the fold from his short off-season to join Brian Beckham, Frank Wanyama, Herman Humwa, Patrice Agunda, Alex Olaba and Cyprian Kuto. 

Kenya Under 20 international Jeff Wendo Mutuku is up for his Quins debut as team manager Jimmy Mnene describes him as an "exciting player with lots of potential." The South Africa based star began playing rugby in 2012 at 12 years old when he attended Kingswood College in SA which led to selections in the Kenya U19 and U20.

Kabeberi 7s Division II winners Makueni RFC return to a venue they won the a title in 2017 and despite falling on the same pool with Nondies, Quins and Mwamba, they will surely not be a walkover side. 

Kennedy Munyao leads the squad with stars like Jeff Wangila, Keith Ochieng, Emmanuel Kilonzo, Eliud Salamba, Charkes Marcel and Alvin Luvai making the squad. 

Billy Odhiambo is key returnee for two time cup finalists Mwamba RFC. He joins fellow Kenya Sevens international Collins Injera in the Kevin Wambua coached side that will be captained by Eliakim Kichoi.
