Blak Blad’s search for a first Kenya Cup win of the 2019/20 season continues on matchday 4 when they host Kisumu RFC at Kenyatta University.

Blad lost all three opening matches while Kisumu’s first and only win came on matchday 2 when they upset Nondescript at Kisumu Mamboleo stadium.

With Wesley Kidinga, Dennis Odhiambo and Sheldon Kahi at the backrow, Steve Ochieng and Trevor Ayombe make up the second row while Baerum Imbuye and Collins Obure are the day’s props.

Kenya 7s international Brian Wahinya, Oscar Okarun, Kelvin Nyausi, Stormy Odhiambo and Emmanuel Omae are named on the bench.

From the squad that lost 65-22 to Mwamba RFC, Kisumu make up to four changes as flankers Sam Mogere, Bonny Okoth, fly-half Stephen Obadiah and winger Brun Otieno replace George Henry, Kelly Magutu, Felix Otieno and Hillary Myaundi.
