Brad will partner Marcus Mureithi in the midfield with Shaban Ahmed resuming his flyhalf duties as Lavin Asego misses out on this tour. Victor Wayodi is also back replacing impressive Kevin Wambua at scrumhalf.

On the substitutes, bench, fit again hard running Felix Otieno will be looking to continue with his steady march to full fitness and will seek to pick off from where he left last weekend. Otieno came off the bench to put in eye catching display in the 37-15 demolition of Mean Machine.
