A game between Toyota Buffaloes and Barrels Warriors is always a back-breaking fixture and that is what it promises to be today in week-six of the Nile Stout Premier Rugby League.

Buffaloes have beefed up their side with experienced Brian Tabaruka and lock Romano Ogwal targeting maximum points.

Tabaruka, a former Hima Cement Heathens fullback and coach, will bring experience and maturity to the team together with Ogwal.

"We are both building our teams after losing players to top sides. So Tabaruka and Ogwal are assets to guide these young players we have," Buffaloes coach Edgar Lameriga said of the return of the two veterans.

"We both play a running game and I am confident Ogwal and Tabaruka fi t in the game as we target a win," Lameriga added.

However, Warriors who are in third position on the table log with 16 points are targeting a win to stay in touch with leaders Heathens (23 points).

In the other fixtures, of the day defending champions Heathens host Jinja Hippos at Kyadondo, while Shell Rimula Rhinos take on stubborn Plascon Mongers.

In Bweyogerere, former Champions Stanbic Black Pirates host Mulago Rams in a must win game if they are to keep the title hopes alive.
