Comedian Collins Mulindwa, best known as Kerekere,  will have to put aside his theatre comics and take charge of a top of the rugby league clash between Rimula Rhinos and Buz Pirates at Legends Rugby Club as centre referee this Saturday.

The World Rugby Level II referee will be assisted by Rosenberg Kanyunyuzi and Ivan Arinaitwe and is expected to handle the highly billed game with the highest level of professionalism.

"It is going to be a tough game and I expect them (referees) to handle it with high level of professionalism," said Match Commissar Robert Bwali.

The Bukedde TV's Kayisanyo programme host faces a big task of controlling a game expected to be highly charged.

"I'm ready for the game and what I expect from both sides is respect each other and play rugby for the fans to enjoy," said Mulindwa.

Former Pirates player and coach Brian Makalama will be in charge of Rhinos and will be motivated by last week's 34-20 beating of defending champions Kobs.

"We are ready for them. Actually I am facing my U-19 side, but the advantage is that I don't have tactics they (Pirates) can base on to defeat me," said Makalama.

Pirates are top of the league table with 20 points, one ahead of Heathens and Rhinos (second and third respectively).

In the other weekend games, Heathens visit Sadolin Mongers in Entebbe while Betway Kobs visit Makerere Impis at the Graveyard ground.

Warriors play Rhinos at Legends at 2pm and Toyota Buffaloes host Gulu Elephants in a bottom-of-the-table clash.
