Impala II have been handed a walkover by Mombasa II on the opening day of Eric Shirley Shield as the latter failed to turn up.
Mombasa RFC travelled with only team one members meaning the Gazelles, who are the ESS defending champions, start with a 24-0 walkover.
Impala II played a friendly with Mean Machine II winning 17-5.
Mombasa’s Chris Atingo told Raga House they will, however, be available for next week’s clash with Blak Blad which will be played on Sunday.
Other ESS matches of the afternoon will see KCB II play Strathmore II, Nakuru II take on Kisii II, Kabras II entertain Mwamba II and Blak Blad II host Nondies II.
