The second row will have Reagan Juma making way for Leo Opiayo who will partner with Nick Ongeri, who has started in all matches for the team this year.

In the back row, George Ooro, who is a Kenya 7s player, will make his second start, alongside Gabriel Ayimba and Dennis Mbila who will retain their positions.
