The rugby-thirsty fans at the new lake side House of Pain in Katabi – Busambaga in Entebbe Municipality will have to wait a little longer for yet another home contest.
The Plascon paint sponsored Mongers required no sweat and no calories to burn with an easy win at their own grave yard as Makerere Impis failed to turn up during a Nile Special Stout rugby premiership match.
Several fans had turned up for the game and the Mongers team was full to capacity.
By 4:30 PM, the scheduled kick off time, there was no sign that Makerere Impis would appear and it remained the case up to 5:00 PM.
Center referee Rosenberg Kanyunyuzi then inspected the Mongers’ players, they walked to the field of play.
Veteran Ronald Adigas raced to the try line, dived as he touched down in a ceremonial try well celebrated by fellow players and fans around.
A walk over was given before the referee signed onto the match report that only had names of the home team, team and match officials.
With a 21-00 victory secured, Plascon Mongers then turned to a training session.
