Top Fry Nakuru make only two changes from last weekend’s Kenya Cup squad to the team to play Western Bulls in the pre-quarters of the Enterprise Cup at NAC from 4pm.
Head Coach Mitch Ochola named lock Dan Githanga in place of Philip Owuor who moves to flank to replace Cassius Omollo.
Kenya 7s international Oscar Ouma misses for the first time since returning and will be replaced by Brian Mayaka who was on the bench in the win over Strathmore Leos.
Championship side Western Bulls have Solomon Obiero as the team’s fly half while Allan Kasiti will be at scrum-half.
Skipper Evin Kanyanga, Robert Awich and Teddy Akal complete the back row as Powell Odongo and Suleiman Odongo start on the wings.
"I have rested most of my players and given a chance to young guys to express themselves. Basically it's a blend of experience and youngsters," said Western Bull head coach Bram Shikanda.
"I expect a serious opponent from them (Nakuru) as they will be keen to take a stab at the next stage in this tournament."
Kenya Cup champions KCB await the winner of this match in the next round.
