Homeboyz RFC welcome back a number key players who were unavailable when they went down to Kenya Harlequin on match day three.

Leon Adongo is in line to make his Homeboyz debut after signing from rivals Impala Saracens. Head coach Simon Odongo said "we signed him during the off season. He was just getting accustomed to the way thing are at the club."

William Diffu, Israel Soi, Mohammed Omollo and Michael Wanjala have all been selected in the match day 23 to play Menengai Oilers away in Nakuru.

Keith Wasike will operate from the base of the scrum and will be joined in the back-row by Stanley Isogol and Roy Wesonga. Regular no.8 Steve Otieno is unavailable owing to a knock he picked last Saturday, as is Dalmus Chituyi who is set for surgery later this month due to a meniscus injury.

Mohammed Omollo has been deployed at scrum-half and will combine with the equally young Henry Ayah at half-back.

William Diffu and Israel Soi, both of whom played at the Dubai 7s last weekend, have cracked the nod mid field in the absence of Max Kang'eri and Zeden Marrow as the pair sustained injuries in Dubai.

Coach Simon Odongo has gone for the formidable front-row trio of Thomas Okidia, Joseph Amalemba and Paul Ouko while Wallace Onyango will pair the experienced Polycarp Odhiambo in the boiler room.

Jan Remke and Mark Ongayo will be the afternoon's winger as Brian Juma do duty at fullback. Kelvin Masai, who have been deployed at fullback recently, is out due to an injury sustained in training and is not expected back till next year.

There are two prospective debutants on the bench in flyer Leon Adongo and Elijah Ngan'ga.

Homeboyz head into this clash of the back of a defeat to Quins and are currently ranked seventh, just a point better than their weekend's opponents, who are ninth with four points under their belts.
