Toyota Buffaloes make the journey to Entebbe, to the House of Pain to tussle it out with Plascon Mongers in the Quarters fo a place in the final 4.
Buffaloes made an easy meal of Bweyogerere Tier 2 side Stallions 42-03 in the opening round, while Mongers enjoyed their journey to the East posting 60 points against a hapless Barbarians side.
“Of course, they (Mongers) are a hard nut to crack but like any other team, we are going into this game for the win.,” says Coach Lemerigar of the Toyota Buffaloes.
“Above all else, every game now is an opportunity for Buffaloes to show they are a new unit. Hopefully, by the final whistle, we shall have used our strategies and utilized everyone’s strength to help hold our heads high at the end of it all.”
Mongers have been recently buoyed in the right direction by a fresh sponsorship package by their name sponsors, Plascon Uganda which saw them get a full kit and UGX 12.3M going to the developments happening at their stadium, all making it a hard trip for Buffaloes to Entebbe.
@Mongersfc this morning received a colourful boost ahead of the new rugby season as part of the ongoing sponsorship that included the handover of the 1st kit earlier this year and a UGX12.3M donation towards the Mongers pitch development project. #ColourYourWorld #Mbookya pic.twitter.com/IymUs5f3PW
