They rarely play for their clubs due to their involvement with the national side, Kenya 7s that is always on session between October and May.

However, the Kenya Sevens players will this weekend turn out for their local sides at the third leg of the national sevens circuit, Kabeberi 7s in Machakos.

Captain Oscar Ayodi has been named by Homeboyz who look to win their third consecutive leg. Homeboyz is to local circuit what Fiji is to HSBC World Sevens Series. 

Ayodi is joined by fellow Kenya Sevens International Augustine Lugonzo but Jeff Oluoch is unvailable. 

All time second top try scorer Collins Injera has been named by Mwamba RFC -the Kabeberi 7s hosts who have lost two finals in a row. His addition will be crucial to going a step further and take the Cup home .

Over to Kenya Harlequins, Frank Wanyama and Herman Humwa are expected to help the Ngong rd side return to Sevens glory after getting relegated at Sepetuka 7s. 

Former Kenya 7s captain and now regular forward Andrew Amonde loves the green shirt and he will be on it as KCB seek to remain in contention for the overall title and first cup win of the season. 

Nakuru RFC have also named Kenya Sevens winger Nelson Oyoo with head coach Mitch Ochola saying it’s a big inclusion. 

Oscar Ouma, who captained Kenya 7s for the better part season, remains unavailable. 

Kabras Sugar will for yet another weekend have Dan Sikuta in their forward-line while half-back Brian Tanga is also in the mix. 

Eric Ombasa, one of the youngest Kenya 7s players, leads Menengai Oilers after their dream season in 2017 but the Nakuru based side will miss the services of Sam Muregi. 

Dennis Ombachi of Nondies "picked a knock earlier this week in training" according to team manager Kevin Were and so cannot make the team to Machakos. 

Head Coach Innocent Simiyu will also be in Machakos as he continues with his scouting for additional players who will join the current squad.
