Impis Vs Ezee Money Rhinos at 4:30pm
Makerere Rugby Grounds
Impis will back home at Makerere Rugby Grounds aka Graveyard when the side hosts unbeaten Ezee Money Rhinos on Saturday. They will be in pursuit of maiden triumph, having succumbed to three losses in a row. Meanwhile opponents Ezee Money Rhinos head for this encounter unbeaten in three.
The Makerere based team is still stuck at the bottom of the premiership table and ought to look at this match as fate decider following their 62-00 fall on last Friday at Kyandondo against the 2013/2014 season runners up Heathens. The outfit is yet get stable after letting go of key men Adnan Mutebi, Keith Seruyange, Emmanuel Echodu and Augustine Kasansula to Kobs.
They currently seem to be taking Lira Bulls route last season, that saw the side win-less for the greatest spell ever in the league. Nevertheless Impis are a far better side despite having gathered only 15 score points courtesy of two tries and a penalty by Daniel Ortega and Dembe Joel respectively.
Ezee Money Rhinos seem invincible this season thanks to their awesome start with three wins in three encounters this season. Coach John Musoke has impressed beyond expectation so far as his side has continued to display brilliance in the scrummaging. Leaving alone their recent outing against Mongers, the team is good to go.
Their handling in the flanks still remains an issue and this may cost when they meet teams with Heathens-like diverse play system. If Impis could capitalize on that weakness, this could culminate a serious battle. Rhinos however are far superior in taking spot kicks. Ivan Makmot has mastered the art of conversion and this could turn out detrimental to the home side.
Byron Atubikire hasn’t taken the headlines by storm as last season and will need to improve his performance after being taken off in Rhinos encounter against Sadolin Mongers. Paul Zimbe, Martiall Tchumkam and Daudi Semwami who put up man of the match performance against Mutoni Warriors are expected to return to spur the Rhinos to fourth victory in four.
Ezee Money Rhinos’ Ivan Makmot heads for his fourth match with a record 4 good penalties and 2 perfect conversions, a rate of two good kicks each encounter.
Ezee Money Rhinos are currently second on the premiership table with 13 points.
Impis is yet to win this season, having lost to defending champions Kobs 68-00, Buffaloes 15-46 and Heathens 62-00.
