Entebbe Rugby Grounds

Sadolin Mongers Vs Heathens at 4:30pm

Heathens will be in Entebbe on Saturday, as the side seeks fourth victory after thrashing Mutoni Warriors 64-03, Pirates 11-32 and Impis 62-00. The runners up of last season will be tussling it out against Sadolin Mongers away from home.

With a diverse system of play the outfit has developed, Mongers who defeated Kobs this season could face an uphill task in bringing down these, the current premiership leaders. Heathens are now looking good in the flanks and have the capability of hurting Mongers greatly.

Mongers as well have impressed in the scrummage, a point of strength they manipulated to defeat the defending champions 28-15. Andrew Olweny was at the fore front against Ezee Money Rhinos and the team delivered for the first half   only for opponents to make a second half comeback.

Joel Kimuli, who was crowned man of the match following his impressive performance in Heathen’s recent outing could turn out lethal again, having notched  two brilliant tries against Impis and Pirates. Dennis Murithi, Alex Mubiru, Seamus Otim and Evans Kingasia could also be considered thanks to their consistency.

Mongers coach, Robert Powell has successfully made Entebbe Rugby Grounds aka ‘House of Pain’ a tough ground for visiting sides as it was last season and Heathens should expect nothing less. Skipper John Wandicho and Simon Wakabi are expected to feature as the side intends to recover from loss against Rhinos.
