Kenya Cup league leaders KCB Rugby have made changes to their starting squad ahead of their match against Menengai Oilers scheduled for Saturday at Nakuru ASK Showground.

Festus Shiasi earns his maiden Kenya Cup start and has been deployed in the midfield alongside Esau Otieno as Elphas Adunga paves way. Samuel Asati keeps his place at scrum-half with Brian Wahinya returning to the squad to play as fly-half in the absence of Shaban Ahmed.

The back three is unchanged once again with Jacob Ojee and Michael Kimwele on the wings and Darwin Mukidza at full back.

Peter Waitere, Andrew Amonde and Felix Ojoo stay in the back row while Martin Owilla is back to partner with Elvis Olukusi in the second row as Davis Chenge moves to the bench.

In the front row, Thomas Okidia has paved way for Oscar Simiyu who joins Wilfred Waswa and Curtis Lilako in the front row.

KCB will be eyeing maximum points in Nakuru to stay top of the log.
