Egerton Wasps and Blak Blad face off on Saturday from 4pm at Kenyatta University with the winner set to top pool A of the Varsity League.
With Blad also participating in Impala Floodies, Egerton will be looking to take advantage of that but the Kenyatta University side has maintained a number of those who played in the first and second rounds.
Lionel Ajeyl is at fly-half for Blad wile Steve Biko and Brave Mukoro are the second rows. Archadius Kwese, who has since received Kenya 7s call up, starts on the right wing while Ryan Ario is on the other wing. Motto Williams will be the head coach.
Wasps will be captained by flanker Bramwel Omwangu as influential Edwin Kiptoo starts at fly-half.
Blad is on nine points going to matchday 3 on top in pool A as Egerton is a point behind.
