Uganda: Pirates Desperate for a Win

SOLOMON Mawanda, Greg Lukendo and Marvin Odong are Pirates biggest injury concern ahead of the Saturday Nile special Rugby League against Summerkamp at Legends rugby ground.

The men credited with adding a new dimension to Pirates and Rugby Cranes games last season, are again ruled out of Saturday's game after resting for two games that ended with embarrassment and leaving Pirates desperate for a win.

After an embarrassing 15-10 defeat by Rhinos, Pirates coach Brian Makalama is worried of the performance but states that he will do whatever it takes to have a win in Saturday's showdown against Summerkamp.

"It's true I'm worried of the performance as coach but I have to fix the problems with the available players to win the game," Makalama stated in an interview.

However, charged and their moral high after reducing the score margin from 70-0 in the maiden game to a 46-6 in the second game Sumerkampers are confident they can hold Pirates to their advantage.

"We are shaping up and don't be surprised when Pirates falls on Saturday," Summerkamp skipper David Otwi states.
