Kenya Harlequin and Blak Blad have each announced their match day 23 ahead of Saturday’s Kenya Cup opener at the RFUEA Ground.
Former Kenya international Tony Mutai captains Quins, pairing with Jared Owinyo in what is an experienced second row combination as former Uganda international Dennis Mugambi partners with Frank Kalwale and James Kang’ethe in the front row.
Kevin Keegan is the man tasked with conjuring up magic from the flyhalf position, orchestrating play for a backline that features among others Dennis Muhanji and Pius Shiundu.
Blad will look to the experience and leadership of Steven Odhiambo and Wesley Kidiga in the backrow as well as the creative spark of Ronney Manyasi at number 10.
