Nile Special Premier Rugby League debutants SummerKamp coming off a 70-0 humiliation by Heathens last Friday should not expect mercy from D'Mark Kobs at Kampala Legends Club today.
Disturbed by limited access to their training pitch combined with a shortened league, Kobs coach Fred Mudoola approaches the tie against Summerkamp like a big game.
"We can't afford to lose even a point, there is no opportunity to pick up that lost point because we shall not play against Summerkamp again. I would have certainly preferred the full league where we have 14 weeks of rugby. That's a challenge we have to deal with and the solution to play every game like a final," Mudoola stated. The top four teams in the first round will play in the semifinal to determine finalists that will face off the league title.
Tony Luggya who scored two tries in last Saturday's tie against XFM Impis at Kampala Club and Steven Ogwete are doubtful for tonight's game. Team captain Brian Odong (knee) injury layoff continues and hopes he recovers in time for the crucial games of the season.
