Dan Othieno debuts for Pan Africa Strathmore Leos in their Kenya Cup opener against Mombasa Sports Club on Saturday 8 November in Mombasa.
The journeyman back row who has had stints at Resolution Impala Saracens, Homeboyz and Mwamba was named in Head Coach Mitch Ocholla’s travelling party to the coastal city.
Ocholla, whose Leos finished third last season, is leaving nothing to chance, naming his strongest available side for this clash against a Mombasa that barely escaped relegation last season, finishing 12th on the log ahead of the relegated Kisumu and Eldoret.
