Uganda: Mongers to Launch Fresh Bid for Victory

Sadolin Mongers return to Kyadondo Club where they were trounced by Buffaloes last weekend hoping to pull off an upset against MTN Heathens in the Nile Special Premier Rugby League today.

The Entebbe-based Mongers, who are yet to win a match this season, will be out of contention for the league title if Heathens condemns them to a third loss in as many games.

Monger coach/player Kigongo Ssebalamu acknowledged the difficult situation but warned that they should not be ruled out.

"Pirates beat us narrowly (7-9) in Entebbe, Buffaloes shocked us with those early tries but we can still raise and win the rest of the games," Ssebalamu remarked.

"We know Heathens so well, beating them is not impossible. We are not going to put the team under pressure. We shall enjoy our game and hopefully get a good result at Kyadondo."

In the new league format, the top four teams after the first round will advance to the semi-final playoff.

At Kampala Club, G4S Pirates coming off shock defeat to Rhinos last weekend take on Summerkamp while D'Mark Kobs will take on inspired Rhinos.
