Resolution Impala Saracens and Nondescripts have named their line ups for Saturday’s Kenya Cup opener which doubles up as the Samson Odhiambo Memorial Cup.
The indefatigable Nato Simiyu is once again tasked with pulling the Sarries strings at number 10, relying on the feed from nippy Mohamed Omolo at scrum half. David Dinda and Kevin Ochami partner in midfield while Duncan Ekasi is the focal point of a backrow that features Joel Omer and Kenya lock Eric Kerre.
Christian Josiah has named a very competitive Nondies side boasting a new look front row featuring former Quins and Kabras man Ernie Ngong’ and John Okwara who decamped from Quins in the close season. Ced Odera is back after a long term injury layoff, slotting into a backrow partnership with Eric Okoma and Simon Ngugi.
