Herman Humwa, alongside his teammates, takes over the leadership from Mike Onsando, who led the team alongside Brian Waraba and Dominic Osino in the previous season.

The newly appointed leadership will be determined to guide the side, coached by Paul Murunga, to put an end to their 11-year wait for a 15s silverware.

The team is also benefiting from the presence of Cheetahs under 20 head Coach Henly Du Plessis, who is currently overseeing the preseason preparations in the absence of Murunga, who is with the Kenya Lionesses in Dubai.

It is worth noting that Quins made significant strides last season, finishing in the top four after narrowly avoiding relegation just one season prior, thanks to a head-to-head tier breaker rule. The team is determined to build on this progress in the upcoming season.
