Buffaloes vs. Warriors (4.30pm, Kyadondo)

Kobs vs. Mongers (4.30pm, Legends)
Former Uganda Cup winners G4S Pirates will visit highflying MTN Heathens at Kyadondo on Saturday well knowing a third consecutive loss in the Nile Special Super 8 Rugby League will condmen them to last on the eight-team log.
Table leaders MTN Heathens will have prop Asuman Mugerwa and blindside flanker Mathias Ochwo back after being rested for last week’s trip to Lira while Pirates who have only 1 point from 2 games they lost have lost captain and key player Marvin Odongo to injury and will have a hard time picking a win from Kyadondo where Heathens have not lost a league game at home in 4 years.
Another unbeaten side, Toyota Buffaloes lies 3rd on the table and is coming off a bruising win against Sadolin Mongers and will play Mutoni Warriors who scored their first league tries and secured their first point last week. They look to their battling second half display against Rhinos as springboard for this tie. Both teams favor an expansive running style of play. This thus promises to be an exciting game of end to end action.
Ezee Money Rhinos also rallying on their best league start in history are unbeaten in 4th place host Lira Bulls who finally played their first premiership game and were on the receiving end of a 70-12 drubbing.
The big game at Legends pits 2rd placed DMark Kobs who are yet to concede a try in the league against 5th place Sadolin Mongers have not won a game and only have 1 point from 2 games but have scored tries in both games.
