Rugby: Fijian-Kubu returns as Kabras Sugar eye fourth Kenya Cup win

Rugby   |   December 18, 2021


Fijian-born Kenya Simbas playmaker Jone Kubu is set for his first start of the season as Kabras Sugar travel to play Impala Saracens at Impala Club which will host a double header on Saturday.

Kubu has missed the three Kenya Cup matches Kabras has played after being away with the national 15s team in South Africa.

Kabras will be targeting maximum points against Impala who have failed to pick a win this season with head coach Jerome Muller making four changes to the starting squad that played last Saturday against Mwamba.

Thomas Simiyu, Ephraim Oduor, Hillary Mwanjilwa and Kubu replace Kevin Wekesa, Emmanuel Were, Asuman Mugerwa and Ntabeni Dukisa respectively.

Other places remain unchanged with Habil Malik and Vuyo Mbotho starting in the midfield while Alfred Orege, Derrick Ashihundu and William Opaka maintaining their places.

Steve Sikuta, George Nyambua, Eugene Sifuna, Shem Angugo and Brian Juma are also in the team.

At the same ground, defending champions KCB will play Mwamba in the early kick off match.
