Buffaloes survive Impis, stay third

Rugby. There is not much time for Buffaloes to reflect as they face the rampant Heathens at Kyadondo tomorrow whereas Kobs face G4S Pirates at Legends ground.
There’s no substitute for experience and Toyota Buffaloes know Robert Seguya is perhaps as important to them as he was to MTN Heathens for 13 years.
Under alien conditions on Wednesday evening at Kyadondo ground, the veteran, now in his 15th active year of rugby, produced a masterclass to lift Buffaloes to a 16-13 victory over Impis in the Nile Special Super 8 Rugby League. Due to heavy rain, both teams struggled to impress which made it a scrappy contest.
Only Seguya, who was later named man-of-the-match for his two tries, seemed to cope. “You can all see the conditions were bad but the boys will learn with time,” Seguya said.
Impis are yet to win a game this term but Wednesday is probably the best display the Makerere University side have had all season and should take heart ahead of the visit of Sadolin Mongers tomorrow.
Consequently, Buffaloes booked their place in the top four, guaranteeing a place in the semifinals next month. They now lie third behind leaders Heathens (20 points) and second-placed DMark Kobs (19), the latter boasting a better points difference.
