Loose-forward Ian Obukwa will captain Blak Blad in the Varsity League final against hosts Mean Machine on Saturday October 27, 2018.
Obukwa leads a Blad side that seeks to add the KUSA 15s trophy to their cabinet after taking the Sevens title earlier this side, at UoN.
Fly-half Lionel Ajelit is named for his fifth match of the campaign with Kenya 7s scrum-half Brian Wahinya named as the scrum-half. Emmanuel Omae and Stomy Odhiambo make up the midfield while Achadius Kwese- also part of the Kenya 7s squad, and Ryan Ario will start on the wings.
They face a Machine side that has also been on-form. On-form eighth-man Aron Otieno, fly-half Bruce Odhiambo and fullback Trevor Asina who has had a good campaign make up the Varsity League squad alongside Festus Shiasi, last weekend's captain Ben Mwangi and Ian Wando who starts from the bench.
