In a repeat of last year’s Uganda cup semi final, league defending champions, MTN Heathens will want to revenge against the Pirates in a bid to keep pace with on-form side, UTL Kobs.
Heathens must win tomorrow’s fixture at Kampala rugby grounds to keep shape before they take on league record winners, the UTL Kobs as the first round nears its end.
Pirates will play without inspirational Marvin Karugonjo who is out for almost two months with minor cracks in the ankle bones. Scott ‘300’ Olouch will face his former bosses for the first time.
Pirates have scored 15 tries this season in the Nile Special Rugby league with 3 from Marvin Odong and Dennis Etuket each. Against the Kobs last week, they lost courtesy of 7 penalties but did not concede a try.
Heathens spread the ball well into the wings and Pirates need to watch out.
