KCB Rugby head coach Curtis Olago has unveiled his squad against Strathmore Leos in a match that will double up as the second edition of  Di Baddest Cup set for KCB Sports Club on Saturday at 3:00 p.m

The Di Baddest Cup is meant to honour Jerry Olola who played for both sides. The first edition was held last year with KCB taking the bragging rights after winning 33-18.

KCB Rugby welcome Aguko

Backrower Rocky Aguko is set to start his first Kenya Cup match after close to two years since suffering a horrific injury in the 2021 Kenya Cup final.  He has been featuring predominantly in the  Eric Shirley Shield in preparation for his return. Midfielder Petr Kilonzo comes in for the first Kenya Cup appearance this season as well as speedster Geoffrey Okwach.

Captain Griffin Musila will maintain his spot in the front row as the hooker. He will be with Nick Okullo and Wilhite Mususi in the loose and tight head props respectively.


The second row will have the pairing of Davis Chenge and youngster Andy Cole Omollo as Emmanuel Silungi drops out. The back row has Elvis Olukusi in the blind side flank with Peter Waitere on the open side. Aguko comes in to take the number 8 jersey.

Emmanuel Opondo maintains his spot at the scrum half with Brian Wahinya being the fly half. The wings have Austin Sikutwa on the left and Geoffrey Okwatch on the right. We will see the partnership of Bob Muhati and Peter Kilonzo in the midfield as inside and outside centers respectively. Darwin Mukidza will be fullback.
