Despite losing on Premiership opening weekend, Buffaloes have picked themselves up since and have won three games on the trot, their latest victims being the Shell Rimula Rhinos, winning 33-18.
Buffaloes lost about 8 first team players in the transfer window to Heathens but the Kyadondo side have continued to breathe fire just as was the case last season when they caused major upsets including beating Heathens home and away.

The Buffaloes were too quick in the first half scoring three tries in that period alone through Eddie Kayima (2) and Innocent Gwoktho before Paul Bagota added another in the second half.
“They were much bigger but slower and less fit so we exploited that. We threw the expansive running game at them as their game revolved more around 2 players (Martial and Scott). Their pack was many miles heavier than ours but I applaud Buffaloes for the patience, heart, hard-work, teamwork,” said Coach Edgar Lemerigar.
“We are taking baby steps. It is one step at a time and I am glad we have no major injury scares in the side. We only look at one game at a time and we are now getting ready for the next challenge.”
