Warriors get ready for Buffaloes

DusuPay Warriors, joint top of the log, are putting in final touches as they get ready to play Toyota Buffaloes in their last game of the year, and what should their toughest game thus far in the Uganda Rugby Premiership.

 

Warriors will play only their sixth game this season against Buffaloes as neither were in action last weekend. Warriors welcome Buffaloes, who after the opening day defeat to Heathens, have picked up four consecutive wins earning points that have put them level with defending champions, Black Pirates(18).

Warriors are having the time of their lives, finding themselves ahead of chasing park, only rubbing shoulders with Heathens, but as they get ready for Buffaloes, they know it will be their toughest test thus far.

“Honestly, I do not have my best foot forward. But the good thing is I have a group of lads who know what it means to play with Warriors,” said coach-player Gabriel Aredo.

A win for Warriors will keep them aloft of the chasing park as we head into the festive season.
