John Oduk will skipper Strathmore Leos in Nakuru as they look to continue their Kenya Cup form into the Sevens circuit.
Head coach John Mbai named George Orembo, Walter Otuke, Gideon Makumi, Alex Maina, Owen Otieno and Lucas Opal in his 13 man squad that will seek to come back with the Prinsloo 7s title.
In 2017, Strathmore Leos reached cup semis only to lose 14-10 to eventual champions KCB and a step forward this season will mean a cup final.
