Talking points from last weekend’s rugby action

With every weekend of rugby comes a million talking points and a million opinions but how about we look into the past weekend this way:

  1. No Aredo-Kimono, No Party

Kobs had to dig deeper than deep this past weekend to beat the Mongers 30-29. The team was without the relentlessly productive Justin Kimono and Joseph Aredo. The Kobs withstood a stormy second half to score a late try off a signature rolling maul, a move that has yielded results for them before. The win wasn’t comfortable. In fact, far from it. As a center, the Kimono experiment has paid off for Kobs and he has been lethal in that position in carrying the team forward and getting himself a number of five pointers. After a man of the match of performance against title rivals, Heathens, Kobs thought it wise to let Aredo rest and that decision almost cost them. He usually provides a calm head at the back, good defensive decisions and game reading on top of safest hands at the back. He was later hurled from wherever he was into the heat of the game to help throw a few instructions to the Kobs lads to steer them to the win. Kimono on the other hand, could only afford to look on as he walked out of the Heathens-Kobs encounter with an injury and is clearly in no rush to get back.

  1. Heathens struggle but will always find a way

It is safe to say Kobs left nightmares in the Heathens heads. Against a depleted Rhinos side, the 2017 champions struggled to play their game despite the scoreboard flattering them with a 24-00 win. The kicking of the Heathens when they cross the road to play at Legends is something to debate about when time allows us as it again came back to bite them this weekend, converting two tries out of four.

  1. Title is still up for grabs

The title chase is still on, and with all due respect to the Pirates late awakening, it is on but only between Kobs and Heathens. Heathens acquisition of the bonus point against Mongers, and Kobs failing to get one against the Mongers is what put the Mathematics against Kobs, to bring the Heathens back in the picture and in contention.  Kobs still have to host the defending champions Black Pirates at Legends while the Heathens have to go to Entebbe to face the Mongers, the same team that gave Kobs a headache. They share a fixture that may or may not prove King Maker, with Kobs playing Warriors at Legends, while Heathens will be hosting them a fortnight later. Only two points separate the two teams at the top and whoever drops a single point in the remaining games will rue their chances.

 

  1. Old is gold

Once again, the veterans turned up over the weekend and showed why their teams still have them on their rosters. Mongers lined up Andrew Olweny, Wakabi Simon, Adrian Wasswa alongside the youth and agility of Joachim Chisano, Paul Sekate to frustrate the Kobs.  On top of scoring a try, Olweny assisted Hannington in scoring the try that brought them within a point of Kobs, before Adrian Wasswa converted it to send Mongers a point ahead of Kobs. The pack was a well-managed balance of experience and youth, with Chisano emulating Olweny’s drive and actually getting himself two tries. Aside of Mongers, it was a member of the old guard of Betway Kobs in Timothy Mudoola that helped balance the odds for the home side and finally inspire them to that winning try. The Kobs forwards had struggled in the whole game against their Mongers counterparts but Timothy’s inclusion would prove to be the turning point for them.

  1. SMACK has mattresses for hire

Schools rugby is already happening and the drama jut keeps unfolding. This past round, we were taken away from the results and events on the pitch to the padding skills at St Mary’s College School-mattresses. In this rainy season, it was a bold move for whoever surrendered their mattresses to do so. If it had rained, someone was most definitely going to sleep on the floor. It is beyond funny how a school that has played rugby for so long, has no pads for the poles. Needless to say, rugby is SMACK’s number one game – or so they claim seeing that two trophies are not grounds enough for that claim. And I think the mattress owners are humanitarian enough to donate to whoever is struggling in the poles-padding area of rugby should the need arise.
