After beating Nondies 50-5 on matchday 13, Kenya Cup champions KCB chase their 13th win of the season this weekend when they play a playoff-chasing Mwamba RFC at Jamhuri Showground from 4pm.

Head Coach Curtis Olago swaps hooker Griffin Musila for Peter Karia who is benched while fly-half Billy Isabwa starts ahead of Ken Moseti, also on the bench.

Backline changes see Kenya 7s international Vincent Onyala replace Brian Omondi at second five-eighth while Isaac Njoroge is replaced by Michael Kimwele on the open-wing.

Darwin Mukidza is still unavailable meaning his fellow Simba Tony Onyango will continue at fullback. Making the bench alongside Karia is Amusala, Nyandat, Indimuli, Rocky, Asati and Kenya 7s captain Jacob Ojee.

According to Mwambarugby.com, coach Tito Oduk makes minimal changes to the team that blew away Homeboyz 46-19 last weekend restoring Louis Kisia on the blindside flank in place of Yahya Hussein who picked up a groin injury on Tuesday in training.

Eugene Sudi, Salaton Muturi and Kevin Kerore will be the starting front row as hard running pair of Stephen Sikuta and George Omolla link up in the locks. Kisia, Collins Injera and Tony Owuor form an experienced back row.

On the bench, Michael Agevi will be joined by Elvis Namusasi, Martin Oyugi and Chris Asira. Others are Stephen Wangondu, Brian Kahura, Thomas Soteri and Jonah Mbari.

The first leg meeting between KCB and Mwamba ended 33-13 in favour of the bankers who go to matchday 14 sitting second with 59 points as Mwamba are fifth with 38, just one more than sixth placed Top Fry Nakuru.
