The Betway Kobs have won themselves the title -“Bonus Point RFC” because they have amassed the most winning bonus points in the league thus far. Their 10 bonus points along with 10 wins has put them just a point short of the unbeaten table toppers ; Hima cement Heathens. Kobs will be aiming to enhance that record going into the weekend where their direct rivals meet at Kyadondo to tussle it out.
Rams on other hand have won one and lost ten in what has been a hard season so far ; losing 20-24 to the Toyota Buffaloes last weekend, the Rams will need to dig deep to find a way out of their current crisis. They sit in 9th position just a point above bottom placed Barbarians and they are well aware that they are a blunder short of slipping to 10th.
Either team has their own battle to conquer however the terms of conquest differ – the Kobs will feature in the early kick off with part of their attention focused towards Kyadondo, hoping for a favorable score from across the road where a Pirates win or a Heathens win without a bonus point could see them top of the table by Sunday.
From a Rams perspective, the Makerere side will be desperate to get some breathing space from the Barbarians who are just a point below them with every intention to narrow the gap between them and the Hippos who sit in 8th place.
The coaching staff of the Betway Kobs will also be looking to tinker a bit for Saturday’s fixture – it wouldn’t be a surprise to see Josiah Ssempeke given another shot in the much coveted number 10 shirt while we are likely to see a few players rested and others experimented in various positions. The Rams on the other hand will be hoping to have a full complement of players led by their senior long term generals; Emmanuel Kibirige, Jude Rwakayanga and Lumu Ritchie.
