The Protector Franchise team coach Robert Sseguya is not ready make a repeat of what happened on Saturday during the final of the Protector Rugby Super Series Tournament at Kyadondo when he fainted and was rushed for medical attention as his side lost both the trophy and sh4m cash prize to Crocs.

Sseguya could not handle the pressure as his side lost 19-17 to Crocs but he has vowed not to let it happen again.
 

“Yes its true I fainted and I was not sick but it was just pressure of the game but that will be no more,” Sseguya stated.
 

His side Protectors rebranded as Victoria face Kenya’s Chui in the Bamburi Rugby Super Series next Saturday in the opening fixtures at 2:00pm.
 

Protectors resumed training on Monday and Sseguya is making several changes in his squad that includes reinforcement of the team with the U-19 national team stars.
 

“I think my wings were not performing and I am going to make some few changes and bringing in the U-19 boys that are swift. We want this trophy and I think we can make it,” Sseguya stated.
 

“We are not even breaking off for Easter; I don’t want excuses of lack of fitness. We are working on fitness levels and I want the boys to be explosive in the game,” Sseguya stated.
 

The local franchise champion Crocs that are rebranded Rwenzori, will face Kenya’s Papa in a game to be played at 4:00pm on same venue. The Uganda Franchises are sponsored by Hima Cement.
