  • Nile Special Stout Rugby Premier League – Matchday Eight
  • 4pm: Plascon Mongers vs Heathens
  • House of Pain, Entebbe.

Current champions Heathens travel away to Entebbe with hopes of replicating leaders Kobs’ result at the same venue to keep their title hopes alive going into the final matchday.

Their hosts Mongers on the other hand will look to put the ugly 66-12 result behind them, and put up a performance they will be proud of.

Mongers have named a much stronger, more familiar squad for this tie while Heathens have gone all out with the resources available to them.

Captain Paul Angana returns to the starting lineup for Mongers while for Heathens, captain Michael Wokorach is on the sidelines due to national duty commitments with the Uganda Men’s Sevens.
