Kobs will pay Platinum Credit Heathens a visit on Saturday to get payback on the home loss they incurred during the first round of the Nile Special rugby league.
Heathens beat Kobs in a last-minute drop ball from Aaron Ofoyewoth, enabling the defending champions to lead in a slippery 17-15 victory.
According to past records, Kobs rugby was last victorious against Heathens at Kyadondo rugby ground in 2014, and many anticipate that the result this weekend might not be any different from the past.
Coming into this huge clash, the Kobs are missing key players such as Pius ogena, who is currently the league’s top try scorer with 16 tries, Faragi Odugo, and Jude Jjuuko due to a call up to feature for East Africa RFC from March 29-30 during the curtain-raiser event for Hong Kong Sevens.
These players being out of action this Saturday has put many Kobe fans in worry, even if they have players that can fill up the positions and put up a great show against the Heathens.
Nonetheless, the depth of the Kobs is undeniable, and they will still think they have a chance against the Heathens away from home.
On the other hand, Aaron Ofoyrwoth, who scored the winner for Heathens at Legends, is always away for national sevens rugby duty.
The league currently has six games left to be played, and the Kobes are still in the lead with 55 points, with the Heathens coming in second with 54 points, making it a one-point difference.
The game on Saturday could bring about changes in the top two table standings if at all the Kobes lose to the Heathen on Saturday, but if they win, they will maintain the top spot.
