Championship side USIU will travel to Mombasa on Friday, July 21, 2017 to play Mombasa RFC in a pre-season friendly match.
USIU RFC head coach Dennis Mwanja told Raga Housethat the two matches to be played on Friday and Saturday will be for testing players.
“The trip is basically to test the players I have. Most those who have been out when we have been playing Sevens I want to see how they are.” Said Mwanja.
A 23-man squad will leave Nairobi on Friday morning with the majority of them being those who have recently joined the team.
Most USIU players have been out of action since May when they concluded Championship season but the Sevens players have been taking part in KUSA 7s.
National Sevens circuit kicks-off in September with Driftwood 7s while 15s leagues are yet to be known when they will start with a possibility being the end of November or early December.
Mombasa RFC finished second in the championship to gain automatic Kenya Cup promotion alongside champions Kisii RFC.
