Nile Special Premier Rugby League

Heathens v Rhino 2:30pm (Kyadondo)

Buffaloes v Kobs 4:30pm (Kyadondo)

Mongers v Pirates 4:30pm (Entebbe)

Warriors v Lira Bulls4:30pm (Legends)

Stocky Scot Oluoch unleashed his “A-game’ against Dmark Kobs and was understandably dreaded by rivals fans whose teams faced Heathens at Kyadondo.

When Oluoch returns to Kyadondo in a Kobs’ blue shirt, a sight that many rugby fan are yet to get accustomed, Toyota Buffaloes know what to expect from him in the Nile Special Premier Rugby League today.

Just last weekend he scored one of the tries as Kobs edged out his former team Heathens at Legends to take a four-point lead on 29 points.

With Buffaloes and Heathens at 24 points, today’s encounter has a huge bearing on the league.

Should Kobs get a bonus point victory over Buffaloes they will open up a 10-point lead going into the Christmas break. They would have an upper hand in the second round which kicks off on January 4.

Buffaloes not only need victory to keep their own chances of a maiden league title alive but to keep the title race open to all three front runners---Kobs, Buffaloes and Heathens.

Kobs who take to the Kyadondo pitch charged by the hunger of going without league success for five years and inspired by last weekend’s victory over Heathens, will have many betting their money on them.

Kobs coach Fred Mudoola played down their victory over Heathens and argued that Buffaloes were a formidable side as well.

“All teams are evenly matched and no game is more important. Buffaloes beat us this year, they gave Heathens a run for their money. Our priority is to do our best to win and then think of a bonus later,” Mudoola warned.

Heathens take on Rhinos at the same venue while Sadolin Mongers host Pirates in Entebbe.
