Kabras RFC head coach Carlos Kaytwa has implemented seven changes to the starting 15 ahead of the upcoming match against Nondies at Impala Club on Saturday at 2:00 p.m.

This decision sees the return of Kenya 7s trio and Uganda Cranes duo to the match-day squad for the first start this season.

Ugandan International Eliphaz Emong takes over from Andrew Wangila, forming a partnership with Hillary Odhiambo.

Kenya 7s forward William Mwanji is set to make his debut for the Sugarmen. He replaces Jeanson Musoga, who sustained an injury last weekend. Mwanji assumes the blindside flanker role, with George Nyambua moving to the open side. Reinhard Mwalati earns his second start, now playing at number eight.

Brian Tanga takes the place of Dan Angwech, and Barry Robinson at fly-half steps in for Jone Kubu, who is unavailable after being stretchered off in the previous match.


With Walter Okoth absent, Bryceson Adaka shifts to the inside centre, while Derrick Ashihundu earns a start in the midfield at outside centre.

Lamec Ambetsa takes Ashihundu’s position on the blind side, and Mathias Osimbo remains on the right side. Ntabeni Dukisa retains his role as fullback for the second consecutive game.

Kenyan International Kevin Wekesa is included on the bench, alongside former MMUST winger Griffin Chao and youngster Collins Osore, who are poised for their debut cameos.

Kabras has historically dominated this fixture against Nondies, winning nine out of the last 10 meetings. Seeking to maintain their position at the top, they aim for another triumph against Nondies.
