One of Ugandan rugby’s greatest journeymen Kevin Ivan Makmot will make his Buffaloes debut when the club host Rams at Kyadondo on Saturday, March 6.

This will be in the early kickoff of the opening matchday of the 2021 season. It will be the first competitive match played in Uganda since March 14, 2020 when sport was suspended.

Makmot will play in his first game for the club alongside fellow new signings Kiyimba Abdulshakur and Liam Walker. Kiyimba will start at hooker while Walker is going to run in the midfield as inside center.

The squad is laden with experience from a Romano Ogwal and Eric Toolit second row lockout, and with Brian Tabaruka at fullback.
