Big guns Kenya Harlequin, Homeboyz, Impala Saracens and Nakuru have made crucial changes to their squads ahead of their second round of Kenya Cup matches Saturday in Nairobi, Kisii and Mombasa.

Quins have effected three changes to the side that lost to Homeboyz 41-39 on Tuesday, as they host the 2013 and 2014 Kenya Cup champions Nakuru at the RFUEA grounds.

Deputy coach Victor Sudi indicated that they have brought in fly-half Brian Beckham, eighth man Donald Mussaja and lock Malcom Onsando in place of Eric Shikuku, David Ahugo and Lewis Olako.

Mussaja, Beckham and Onsando came off the bench against Homeboyz.

Despite cracking a 45-15 victory against newcomers Kisii at Nakuru Athletic Club last Saturday, Nakuru are leaving nothing to chance and have also made four changes ahead of their Quins battle.

Flanker Edwn Makori and tight-head skipper Isaiah Nyariki replace Justus Dunde and John Mbugua respectively with George Kimani moving to the wing in place of Hannington Wabwire.

Nakuru head coach Mitch Ocholla disclosed that Kelvin Kioki will start at outside centre with Geoffrey Ominde replacing Donald Oluoch at scrum-half.

“We are seeking to improve on our defence that looked porous against Homeboyz besides holding our strength in the pack,” said Sudi.

“Nakuru are a championship team and we must remain on top of the game.”

Ocholla reckoned that Quins is an experienced side that will present a different style compared to Kisii.

"They have strong forwards but we intend to match them and dominate at the breakdowns,” said Ocholla.
