Kampala Old Boys (Kobs) braved the Saturday downpour and water-logged pitch to earn maximum points off Rhinos at Legends.

With league leaders Heathens beating Warriors earlier at the same ground, Kobs had all to play for in the game Rhinos gave a good account of themselves.

It was Rhinos that put the first point on the board with Sula Ngobi slotting in a penalty early in the game.

Kobs then responded with Joseph Aredo running through the middle before offloading to Collin Kimbowa. However, the prop knocked on near the try line.

The Kobs forwards were then engaged, putting in a few phases before going out left through Adrian Kasito who carried for a few meters and threaded a pass to Aredo. The full back ran through but was brought down near the try line and passed to Justin Kimono to score at the corner. Kasito’s conversion was short.

Fred Mudoola’s men kept Rhinos on the back foot and eventually earned a penalty that Kasito kicked through for an 08-03 lead at halftime.

After the break, Kobs had the same momentum as they kept going at Rhinos defense line.

The pressure finally paid off with James Ijongat breaking Rhinos line with a dummy run for a try and Kasito’s conversion was again short.

Ngobi had a chance to cut the deficit but his penalty was short.

Veteran made a late cameo and scored the bonus point try as Kobs kept the pressure to leaders.
