Man of the Match from the previous game, Felix Okoth, retains his position as a flanker alongside Amos Obae. Samuel Were, the starting number eight from last week, is replaced by Elkeans Musonye.

In the backline, experienced scrum-half Samson Onsumu continues his role, with Tonny Oketch at fly-half.


Chrispine Shitundo and Tyson Maina maintain their spots in the midfield. Kenya Under-20 winger Alvin Khavoli has been given a start on the open wing, while Quinto Ongo shifts to fullback. Beldad Ogeta retains his position on the left wing.

The bench includes Philip Okeyo, Samuel Macharia, and Impala’s Tyson Okoth, providing strong backup options.
