When Rimula Rhinos face Kobs in the National Rugby Premiership on Saturday at Legends, a new man will be in charge of Rhinos.

This is after the club’s Executive Committee decided to release head coach Brian Makalama on Wednesday evening because of unconvincing performance.

A statement released by the club reads in part;

After reviewing the performance of the club so far in the 2017/18 season, the Executive Committee of Rhinos RFC has decided to exercise its right to release Brian Makalama from his contract as Head Coach with immediate effect.

John Musoke and Mathias Ochwo will take over in interim capacities as the Executive Committee decides on permanent placements for head coach role and other soon-to-be announced structural changes at the club.

At the time of Makalama’s sacking, Rhinos are third in the table behind leaders Pirates and Kobs.

Rhinos lost their last game to Heathens which more or less put them out of the title race with five games to the end of the season.
