Hooker John Mululu, recruited from Black Blad, will represent Nondies for the first time when the Red Lions take on Mwamba in the Plate semi finals of the Impala Floodlit tournament on Saturday.
Mululu is one of the seven changes made by coach Foxxy Ojal and replaces the experienced Frank Mutuku- rendered hors de combat by a minor injury sustained during the loss to Strathmore Leos. The other change in the front-row is Ernest Ngong for Stephen Darunga at loosehead.
Lock Henry Fullbright has been preffered to Brian Sinei, as has Issac Oswaga to Japheth Otieno at openside flank.
Foxxy has gone with a new look midfield pairing which will feature Erick Gitau and Ramadhan Mohammed just outside him. William Odhiambo will line up on the blind wing, forcing Brian Oyando to open wing.
"We have quite alot of depth and we want to see what everyone can do. We are already very impressed by some of the young lads. Some of the players are really stepping up at training and it is giving us selection headache, which is what any technical bench from its team," said team manager Kelvin Were, as quoted on nondies.co.ke.
