The inclusion of former Kenya Simbas prop Isaiah Nyariki is one of the four changes that Mitch Ocholla has made to the squad that shellacked Resolution Kisii ahead of their visit to the RFUEA to face Kenya Harlequins.

Nyariki, a vital cog of the Wanyore squad that dominated local fifteens rugby in the 2012/13 and 2013/14 season, only featured in the last three games last season.

Edwins Makori will pack down the blindside in his first game of the season, replacing Justin Bunde while Moses Okendo will partner with Steve Wamae in the second row. He replaces Philip Kwame who is in Dubai with Samurai International.

Laiser Hill alumni Kelvin Kioko has recovered from injury to slot in the outside centre position, pushing George Kimani to the wing while Hannington Wambwire drops to the second team.

Henry Ayah retains the no.10 jersey after a superb performance against Kisii, where he attained a 100% conversion rate and will pair with Geoff Ominde at halfback.
