Four sides remain unbeaten in the Nile Special Rugby league as action resumes this Saturday, 16th November at both Kyadondo and Legends grounds. According to the Uganda Rugby Union, a few changes have been made. Games this weekend will kickoff at 2:30pm followed by late fixtures at 4:30pm.


MTN Heathens Vs G4S Pirates at 2:30pm, Kyadondo Rugby Club

Table leaders, Heathens return home(Kyadondo) with wonderful memories of their overwhelming success in Lira. Unbeaten Heathens will have to polish their defense after Lira Bulls managed to break through getting two tries last weekend. Opponents, G4S Pirates who rest in 6th place are visiting with their disappointing season start, having earlier lost to Rhinos and DMark Kobs. Pirates Captain Marvin Odongo’s injury may mount more misfortune for the visitors.

Toyota Buffaloes Vs Mutoni Warriors at 4:30pm, Kyadondo Rugby Club

Buffaloes are unbeaten, thanks to a walkover in Lira and their narrow victory against Entebbe Sadolin Mongers 19-13 courtesy of Phillip Pariyo’s brilliance. Opponents, Mutoni Warriors have lost to Kobs and Rhinos but stand a chance to bounce back into victory, evidenced by their comeback tendency recently against Rhinos. Warriors’ Owen Kinyera may be their hero again, though Buffaloes seem to have the upper hand in this fixture.

Ezee Money Rhinos Vs Lira Bulls at 2:30pm, Legends grounds

Rhinos, also unbeaten and 4th on table will boast of try and conversion experts, Tadeus Kiwalabye, Byron Atubikire and Abel Ssozi. Rhinos will have to mend their defense since both victories registered have been close and high scoring. Rhinos defeated G4S Pirates 29-25 before overcoming ‘beautiful but unlucky’ comeback kings, Mutoni Warriors 22-20.

DMark Kobs Vs Sadolin Mongers at 4:30pm, Legends grounds

Unbeaten and 2nd placed DMark Kobs ought to avoid contact with brave and very physical Sadolin mongers. Kobs’ Wing James Injongat, Justin Kimono and Brian Odongo will be the key men to watch. Mongers are expected to showcase a solid defense despite having made few attempts to cross the try-line this season.
