Patrick Ruhiu makes a rare start as Mitch Ocholla named his Pan Africa Strathmore Leos squad for Saturday’s Kenya Cup semi final against KCB at the Nakuru Athletic Club.
Ruhiu starts at inside center ahead of Frank Wanyama who is relegated to the bench, and partners Kenya Sevens international Billy Odhiambo in midfield.
Injuries have knocked out experienced lock George Ndemi and flanker Adrian Opondo, forcing a rejig of the Leos forwards with regular number eight Brian Nyikuli deployed at blindside flank and Tonny Owuor starting at number eight. Victor Odera takes up Ndemi’s place at the second row.
This match kicks off at 2.00pm.
