However, there was an upset in the league as Ezee Money Rhinos were beaten 18-13 by Mutoni Warriors.

Norbert Okenyi managed two tries before Gabriel Aredo added a try and penalty to hand Warriors a win over highly rated Rhinos.

Jimmy Musiitwa and James Okello managed a try each for Rhinos and Ivan Kidero added a penalty but that was not enough to save Herbert Wafula's boys a humiliation.

In the other games,  Betway Kobs smashed Rams 38-0 to stay top of the table as they chase the title while Buzz Pirates were 16-5 winners over their Kyadondo opponents Toyota Buffaloes.

Ivan scored a penalty, David Ottwi managed a drop goal, Conrad Wanyama a penalty and Musa Muwonge a try.
