On-song Hima cement Heathens will battle with Toyota Buffaloes in a bid to keep their antenna very high in a Kampala derby on Saturday at kyadondo. Heathens lead the log overwhelmingly on 57 points, with10 better than second-placed Betway Kobs but tied with Buzz Pirates on 47. However separated by a slight advantage in the points’ difference column (points’ scored minus ones conceded) thus holdings onto the spot.
The kyadondo side will look to complete a double over the Buffaloes and stretch the lead at the helm of the 10-team standings. Victory will secure their 13th win of the season in as many games as they inch closer to the title.
At legends, the Betway Kobs, who recovered their impressive form and are now a free-scoring side will be out to avenge against the Rhinos for their first round defeat. Kobs coach Brian Makalama assured that revenge will be on Kobs minds when they face off. “We are waiting for them and we want to pay them in equal measure”, noted Makalama.
In contrast, the Rhinos side who stunned the pirates last weekend coutersy of a hat-trick of penalties from Daudi Semwami and a try from Joseph Tamale will look to further cause a
to the Kobs razor thin title hopes.
The Sadolin Mongers will be hoping to bounce back to winning ways when they take on the black pirates at the house of Payne.
Mongers, however, will need to be more solid at home and avoid sluggish starts to the contest since they cost them in their last outing.
The Entebbe side has experienced a series of night mares this season at home but need a quick response to revive their season. At Makerere, the Impis will tussle it out with Rams at the grave yard.
