Friday Fixture
Mutoni Warriors vs Impis at 5:00pm

Makerere’s rugby outfit Impis, return to Legends Rugby Grounds on Friday in pursuit of a second successive victory after defeating Ezee Money Rhinos 13-07 at home in their last outing.

Impis, who are going to face coach Herbert Wafula’s Mutoni Warriors have played at Legends once, and that’s when Kobs thrashed them 68-00. They come back after being buoyed with their first league win.

They will be away from their home crowd that spurred them to victory and will need to avoid fourth loss after falling to Kobs 68-00, Buffaloes 15-46 and Heathens 62-00 in their first three matches.

The University team is copying fairly with the loss of four of their stars, Adnan Mutebi, Keith Seruyange, Emmanuel Echodu, and Augustine Kasansula who all left for Kobs. The gaps have been filled with fresh players in Captain Daniel Ortega, Twaha, Henry Nsekuye, and Dembe Joel.

Henry Nsekuye who was crowned Man of the Match against Rhinos, last weekends match the side won, ought to replicate the brilliant performance he showcased. And Impis need the momentum and zeal they had at home to flourish away this weekend.

Mutoni Warriors have lost all home matches they have featured in so far and registered their only win of the season away at Kyadondo against hapless Toyota Buffaloes. They currently hold a record of one win and three losses in the premiership.

New recruits in Zeno Otieno Owora and U19 Safaricom Mvp George Nyeko are yet to perform to expectation and the team discipline keeps hurting their chances of  a comeback in games. The side has to now rely on Benjamin Kinobe, Musisi Henry, and kicker Owen Kinyera for points they could gather for a win.

Warriors lost to Kobs 05-32 and their scrummage left something to desire from the fans. Brian Seruyange will be vital too if the side is to be guided and organized for a second Premiership triumph they also seek.

FACTS
Both Impis and Mutoni Warriors have managed only one win in the four matches they have each featured in.

Impis and Mutoni Warriors both languish at the bottom half of the table and look potential relegation candidates.

Impis have scored only two tries this season so far and both have been scored at the graveyard aka Makerere Rugby Grounds.

Impis have performed far better at home where the side has scored all match points they have gathered this season.
