It’s about a week since Mongers gave Kobs an audit of their credentials but everyone is still in amazement as to how the Entebbe side put up a memorable show last Saturday. The fans loved the display but not more than John Wandicho and his players who will be very motivated that his team has started to click after a torrid start to their campaign.
Assuming that Wandicho fields the same team at the House of Pain, it just might be a long day for the Hima cement Heathens who failed to convincingly capitalize on a Rhinos team that didn’t even have enough players to fill their substitutes’ bench. The men in green barely made 24 points when many had anticipated a 50 plus drubbing. Could it be that confidence levels are dropping or is the pressure finally catching up with the Kyadondo big boys.
Heathens will be aware of what’s expected of them going forward; following Kobs’ failure to get a bonus point against Mongers, the cementers are just two points behind the leaders and can’t afford any more lackluster shows which applies more pressure to them in this situation.
Experience will be a key factor in this match up especially among the forwards; Olweny versus Mukama, Uhuru against Chisano, Kitooke versus Ssenteza.
Loyal club man; Michael Wokorach didn’t appear to be in his usual element and has looked like a player carrying an injury ever since their loss to the Betway Kobs – Heathens will need the sevens captain to be at his absolute best if they are to dull the light of a Mongers side that is pumped up from last weekend and will definitely carry the same aura into this game, backed by their home fans. Anything short of a traditional Heathens performance could see one of the biggest upsets in the league and unceremoniously hand the trophy to the blue side of Legends.
This fixture will be a closely contested match up that will go to the death – Keep it Kratos for all the updates.
