Kabras RFC have made seven changes to the squad that will battle Kenya Harlequin in the Kenya Cup semi-final encounter scheduled for Kakamega Showground on Saturday 4 April 2023.
The coach, Carlos Katywa, has brought in senior players who didnt start last weekend. Captain George Nyambua and Dan Sikuta are back in the back row with Eliphaz Emong and Biden Hayo moving to allow for the changes. Jeanson Misoga will retain his position at number eight.
In the second row, Brian Juma returns to partner with Hillary Odhiambo, while David Bunduki moves to the bench.
The front row has also been shuffled, with Ephraim Oduor and Eugene Sifuna replacing Emmanuel Otieno and Teddy Akala. Hillary Mwanjilwa retains his place in the front row but will start as the tight head prop.
Barry Robinson returns to the starting lineup at scrum-half, replacing Dan Angwech, while Ntabeni Dukisa takes up the fly-half position. Walter Okoth partners with Bryceson Adaka in the midfield, and Habil Malik drops to the bench.
Lameck Ambetsa will make his eighth straight start, while Alfred Orege retains his place on the right-wing. Jone Kubu will also continue at fullback.
Kabras RFC will be hoping to maintain their 100% win record in the semis as they take on a formidable Kenya Harlequin side, who are currently on an eight-match winning streak.
