At the back of thescrum, Kevin Wambua has named an experienced backrow that has Tony Owuor at the base with Collins Injera and Louis Kisia pulling on the number and six jumpers respectively.

There’s a slight tweak in the backline as Greg Odhiambo moves outside centre to blind wing in place of Felix Otieno who drops to the bench. Michael Agevi has recovered from a thigh muscle injury and will partner skipper Brad Owako in midfield. Eliakim Kichoi and Ronnie Omondi complete the back three.

Kenya Sevens star Daniel Taabu has been named on the bench alongside Dennis Kimulu, Wycliff Mwema and Alfred Yuko. Others on the substitutes roll are Eugene Nzioka, Steven  Wangondu and Felix Otieno.
