Embu RFC has named a 12-man squad that will do duty in this weekend’s Driftwood 7s in Mombasa.
The squad, largely made of players who played at the national Nationwide quarters, include Nick Mwenda, Jack Macharia, Augustine Munene and Bob Lewis Mutwiri.
Former Nakuru RFC second row David Kivuti is part of the technical bench alongside Benson Kinyua and Moses Mukabane with Derric Kagwanja being the team manager.
“We’ve had good preps and the boys are ready for the challenge,” said Mukabane.
Embu RFC are in pool B of the Driftwood 7s division two with South Coast Pirates, Daystar Falcons and MMUST.
“We expect a competitive group stage. We’ll take a game at a time and our target is top the pool then start day two on a high,” added Mukabane.
Others named in the squad include Duncan Simiyu, Dennis Kariuki, Patrick Kamau, Augustin Kibiwott and Ratemo Dennis.
