Stuck in the relegation zone, Shell Rimula Rhinos' coach Martial Tchumkam has ruled out his side being relegated from the Nile Stout Premier Rugby League.

Tchumkam, the former Rugby Cranes prop assured New Vision Online that his team will do all it takes to survive being relegated this season.

"Who told you we are going to be relegated?, We were at the bottom last week, but now it is Makerere Impis and we are not going back," he said.

"If you look at Rhinos now, we are trying to build a new team and many are students. All players come from far. I also had several injuries, but am positive we shall not be relegated. Our target is to stay and we shall do all it takes to stay in the league," Tchumkam stated with confidence.

With seven games remaining to the end league, both Rhinos and Impis are level at the bottom of the log with six points each but the former has a better point difference.

Defending Champions Heathens are on top of the log unbeaten with 53 points, five ahead of title challenger Kobs (48) in the second position in the 10-team league.

The Stanbic Pirates are in the third position with 38 points, while Mongers and Buffaloes are in fourth and fifth respectively.

The bottom team is relegated at the end of the season and another team from the championship promoted.
