In a bid to end their four-match losing streak in the Kenya Cup, Mwamba Rugby Club have made changes to their starting lineup ahead of their match against Kenya Harlequin scheduled for RFUEA Grounds on Saturday.
Dues Mudaki, Salaton Muturi, and Eugene Sudi have replaced Paul Opiyo, Brian Kahura, and Kevin Juma in the front row, while Mike Okello and captain Chris Asira remain in the second row.
The back row remains unchanged with Eliakim Kichoi, Alex Arturo, and Felix Otieno, but there are several new faces in the backs.
Ronnie Omondi, who has had several outings with the Kenya 7s team, starts at fullback as Brian Kivasia drops to the bench, while Chrispin Omondi and Samuel Mbeche are on the wings.
In the midfield, Felix Chacha and Michael Agevi have been selected with Apollo Owino paving way, and Charles Chege and Michael Ochieng will play at scrum-half and fly-half respectively.
Mwamba will be hoping that these changes to their lineup will help them secure a much-needed victory and move them away from the danger of relegation in the Kenya Cup.
