MMUST have made six changes ahead of their week three Championship duel with UoE Trojans in Kakamega.

The clash will be played at the Kakamega Showgrounds at noon, not MMUST Grounds, after the varsity side was banned from playing at MMUST Grounds for a few games for failing to control their fans during their clash with Western Bullls on week one.

Experienced Brian Fox Ligami will start at scrum-half in the absence Kelvin Abuga, who is carrying an ankle injury, and will combine with Nobert Lumbwani at half-back; former Kabras danger man, Isiah Mulongo, has been handed the no.15 jersey as last weekend's starter Elvis Amunya is hors de combat due to ankle sprain.

Up front, Collins Ngoko will pack on the loosehead side, pushing Kelvin Omondi to tighthead. There is a new second-row combination where Austin Owour and Calvin Wabuyele pushes Mark Wasamba and Bryon Cornel out of the starting XV.

The squad will be skippered by Samuel Mbeche, whose centre pairing with Timothy Mmasi is the only combination that has not been altered.

Among those on the bench are debutant Okwemba Ejakait, fresh from Kakamega High School.

The Dr. Lukes Ahaya Ochieng charges will be out to grind their first win of the season after going down to Kisumu on week two and to Western Bulls in the opener.
