Top Fry Nakuru RFC have made eight changes on their squad ahead of their round 14 Kenya Cup clash against the Kabras Sugar the Athletic Club in Nakuru on Saturday.

Mitch Ocholla’s men defeated Impala Saracens 20-15 in the previous round and are unleashing his top stars for their testing clash against the Kenya Cup leaders.

Ezekiel Waitere, Charles Odhiambo alias ‘Obako’, Cassius Omollo, Geoffrey Ominde, Kenya Sevens international Oscar Ouma, Walter Okoth, Brian Maina and Gramwel Bunyasi have been named in the team.

“A lot of changes since we played in match round 13 plus the Enterprise and Eric Shirley Shield, so for us I think the squad has matured much and the new faces will boast or teams morale against Kabras.”

He also believes he has to change tactically against the resilient Henley Du Plessis coached side.

“Kabras is a much bigger side, their defense is instant and they’re in rich form so for us is just to look at the set piece, go forward and zones plus execute the plan we’ve against them.”

‘The Wanyores’ are currently placed sixth in the 12 team log with 37 points a point behind fifth place Mwamba RFC.

“We are in the play offs spot so anything from number one to six is something that we should look up for but this is sport and it doesn’t have a script at the end of the day we’ve to perform well to keep our number.”

The western based side lost 50-8 to Kabras Sugar away in Kakamega and to Ocholla he won’t be looking for revenge.

“I’m not a sadist and what I know we shall play some good rugby and I believe my boys will produce a competitive play come tomorrow.”

They last won the Kenya Cup  title in 2014 and they will be searching for their third title in the competitions history.
