Polycarp Odhiambo will skipper the Homeboyz RFC side to travel to Kampala, Uganda to take on Uganda Cup champions on Saturday June 16, 2018 at Legends grounds. 

The Enterprise Cup champions named matchday 23 that will head to Kampala for the friendly game with regular figures making up the squad. Humphrey Owuor and Collins Shikoli are back on the wing as Brian Wander and Kenya 7s international Bush Mwale make up the midfield. 

Kevin Masai and Johnstone Olindi will be linking the plays as half-backs while Kenya U20's Stanley Isogol, Richard Alai and Kenya Simbas international Steve 'Security' Otieno make up the backrow.

The front-row heading to Kampala is made up of Elfas Etemesi and Kelly Akenga as props while Shiemi is named as the hooker. Kenya 7s scrum-half Augustine Lugonzo, who returned to the country on Monday from Paris 7s, makes the bench. 

The match between Pirates and Homeboyz is an initiative of the East Africa super cup organizers. Homeboyz head to Uganda by virtue of being Enterprise Cup champions while Black Pirates compete as Uganda Cup champions. 

In May, KCB and Kabras were to travel to Uganda for the Super Cup but that did not materialize. 

To curtain raise the match at Legends, there will be a relegation final at 2pm between Walukuba RFC and KIU West before LIVE screening of Africa Gold Cup between Uganda and Namibia. 

Homeboyz is expected to travel on Thursday evening ahead of Saturday's match according to team manager Simon Odongo. Prize money for the winner between Black Pirates and Homeboyz is Ugsh5,000,000.
