Fly-half Eden Agero and fullback Lyle Asiligwa are named to start for Quins during their matchday 2 clash with defending champions KCB at RFUEA Grounds on Saturday Nov 2, 2019 from 4pm.

The two Kenyan internationals missed last week’s 26-13 defeat to Homeboyz at Jamhuri Park.

Agero replaces Mike Ochieng(bench) at fly-half with Patrice Agunda starting at second five-eighth.

Asiligwa starts at fullback with Eric Shikuku, who started against Homeboyz, not involved against KCB while wingers Pius Shiundu and Jacob Okumba come in for Iddi Kakai and Dennis Oteno(bench) respectively.

KCB head coach Curtis Olago named Peter Kilonzo and Brian Omondi at midfield replacing George Maranga and Elphas Adunga while Collins Wanjala is replaced by Kenya U20 international Mike Kimwele at the left wing.

Fly-half Ahmed Shaban, scrum-half Samuel Asati and hooker Griffin Musila take up Stephen Osumba, Felix Wanjala and George Asin’s places.
