Center Oscar Ouma is named in Nakuru’s squad to play Menengai Oilers in the first edition of Nakuru derby on Saturday Feb 16, 2019 at NAC.
Ouma hasn’t played for Nakuru, 15s version, since the 2016/17 season -under Enos Otieno but played the national sevens circuit in 2017.
Since Mitch Ochola took over in 2017, Ouma has only played the 7s version of the game. He lastly played for Kenya 7s in April 2018 at Singapore 7s.
Last weekend, Ochola expressed optimisim that Ouma’s return will be to Nakuru’s journey this season and especially coming a time they have lost four matches in a row to sit position with 18 points.
Ouma pairs Tyson Asiago at midfield as Hannington Wabwire and Walter Okoth start on the wings. Crispin Onyango is at fullback while Martin Muita will be the team’s joint.
Menengai Oilers lost 22-24 to Impala Saracens on matchday 9 and are also desperate for results to avoid dropping to the relegation zone.
Kenya 7s international Harold Anduvate replaces Aziz Annan at position to skipper the team while Derrick Keyoga comes in for Peter Wanjala on the right wing.
Godwin Karuga will officiate this 4pm clash at the Nakuru Athletics Club.
