Steph to captain Mwamba Ladies for the third leg of KRU Women’s League

Stephanie Waithera will captain Mwamba Ladies for the third leg of Kenya Rugby Union Women’s League that will take place on Sunday.

The Kevin Atandi-coached side will be without four players that have been invited to Kenya Women 7s camp ahead of Commonwealth Games that will be held in Melbourne, Australia. The three are Doreen Remour, Celest Navalayo, Sarah Oluche and Janet Akello “Shebesh”.

Steph will however lead a formidable side that include  combative pair of  Stacy Atieno and Evelyne Kalamera. New signings Jordan Muriithi and Dana de Gracia will have the opportunity to run out in the iconic  Black Shirts.

Other players to watch out for are former Kenya XV internationals Esther Njue and Rosehilda Kamanga.  Sharon Kerubo will also be key to Kulabu’s campaign. Atandi will call on Irene Amara and Winnie Naima to put in the big carries.

Completing the roster for the weekend are Terrt Ayesa, Agnes Nzembi, Violet Somoni, Maryciana Lugasi and Moreen Mmbone.

Mwamba Ladies are currently ranked second behind defending champions Homeboyz Ladies. They are in Pool B alongside Impala, Shamas and Comras.
