The key highlight of KCB squad’s that will take on Kenya Harlequins in the seventh round of the Kenya Cup is the return of winger Darwin Mukidza.

Mukidza missed last week’s trip to Mwamba due to a shoulder knock but has recovered to start at fullback. His return sees Elphas Otieno drop to the bench.

Collins Wanjala starts on the blind wing coming in for Michael Kimwele who started in the win over Mwamba.

Another change sees Simbas backrower Davis Chenge return after missing last week. Brian Nyikuli drops to the bench while Martin Owila starts at lock ahead of his replacement Francis Mwita.

Nyikuli, Abeka, Mwita, Griffin Musila, Nelson Nyandat, Mclanhan Sikuku and scrum-half Marlin Mukolwe start from the bench.

The champions are yet to lose a game and a face a Kenya Harlequins side that seeks to bounce back to winning ways after losing 8-10 to Impala Saracens in the Ngong road derby.

Quins are fifth with 18 points with Homeboyz sitting at fourth with 24 while Blad follows at sixth with 14 points.
