Heathens v Buffaloes, 4:30pm

Hima Cement Heathens coach Muhammad Athio will not underrate Toyota Buffaloes when the two meet in the Uganda Cup second semi-final at Legends Rugby Club on Saturday.

Athio in an interview said that he is well aware that Buffaloes will be out to prove a point, but they are going to approach the game with maturity.

Buffaloes boasts of national team players James Odong, Gerald Ssewankambo, Charles Uhuru and Solomon Okias while Heathens has Lawrence Ssebuliba, Michael Wokorach, Philip Wokorach and Asuman Mugerwa.

Pirates focused:

Pirates last defeated Kobs in the 2010 league with a winning try scored by Dennis Etuket who will be in Pirate’s wing and they have vowed to repeat the same.

“History favours them (Kobs) and they are motivated by agood win against Rhinos in the quarter final, but we are ready for them,” Pirates Team captain Marvin Odong Stated.

Etucket who scored that try ruled out playing under pressure and was optimistic it is time for Pirates to play in the final.
