The Ordinary will also sit in the stands as they witness action from both men and women national teams.

Kenya “A” have made ten changes to their team that is to face Uganda Rugby Cranes, after struggling to in the first leg in Nairobi.

In a bid to consolidate the 3 point advantage win of the previous weekend despite the unimpressive kicks, line outs and ball handling, new faces in Kabras Sugar’s prop Hillary Mwanjilwa, club mate Duncan Mwangi and KCB hooker Peter Kaaria, are to start ahead of McLanhan Sikuku, Francis Akatu and George Asin.

Charles Omondi and Michael Gitau have also been relegated to the bench for Felix Wanjala. Davis Makori returns while Strathmore Leos’ Kenny Andola has been moved to  fly half.

Ken Moseti will play inside center while Duncan Abuyeka and Ian Minjire replace Essau Otieno and Alvin Otieno at fullback and wing respectively. Brian Omondi has been dropped to the bench with Sammy Motari also replacing William Mawira.

Kenya Lioness head coach, Kevin Wambua has made only one change in the side that drew 5-5 with the Uganda Lady Rugby Cranes in the first leg.

Winnie Naima replaces unavailable Emily Hooper and Wambua is confident the side will win away from home. 

“We have looked at what didn’t work for us, most notably the set pieces and line-outs as well as our decision making in the strike zone,” Wambua told capitalfm.co.ke.

“We’ve worked hard to rectify these anomalies. My team is in good health,” he added.
