The Kenya Sevens duo of Derrick Mayar and Sammy Oliech are named in the Impala Saracens 15-man squad to Prinsloo 7s on Saturday, September 24, 2017.

Mayar returns for the first time since 2016 when he helped the team to a third-place finish while Oliech will be making his first appearance in the shorter version since 2015.

Impala, fresh from winning Kabeberi 7s, have Kenya Simbas scrum-half Samson Onsomu who has had a scintillating season with the national 15s side while Hannington Mbaka will be making his second outing after debuting at Kabeberi 7s.

Sevens captain Leon Odongo continues to be sidelined with a bruised rib while his vice George Okowa has a groin injury picked in Mombasa three weeks ago.

Samuel Motari will skipper the side as Impala take on Top Fry Nakuru, Nondies and Blak Blad in pool A.

Impala lost 2016 final 19-14 to Homeboyz but replied a week later by beating the Deejayz in Nairobi.
