Betway Kobs to spend festive season as christmas champions

By Deus Bugembe


Betway Kobs have enjoyed the view of the league from the summit since the second week of the campaign when they beat Jinja Hippos 14-71. It has been a stroll from then on with bonus point wins becoming routine. By outwitting Rimula Rhinos 17-31 on Saturday, they ensured that the team kept their clean start with 25 points from five games on a day centurion Justin Kimono reached 72 tries for the club. Alhadji Manano and Brian Odongo also got onto the score sheet.
With the league heading for a two-weeks break, christmas will be a fine holiday for Kobs who hope to carry on when the festivities are done.
“We want to keep working hard because we still have tough games ahead,” captain Bryan Asaba told Daily Monitor.
They cannot afford to get lost in the rest as games against Mongers, Pirates and Heathens lie ahead.
In Makerere Hima Heathens ended their three-game losing streak with a 22-10 much-needed win over Rams. With Consecutive losses against Pirates, Buffaloes and Rhinos, Heathens needed a breather which they found in Saturday’s result.
Tries from Allan Otim, Ronald Kanyanya, Romano Ogwal and Arthur gave them only their second win of the season.
At Kyadondo, Timothy Kisiga got a hattrick as Timothy Odongo, Isaac Massa and Richard Odekere all managed one apiece to power Pirates to a huge 11-45 demolition job of Buffaloes. A week after being awarded a walkover against Pirates, Mongers mauled Hippos 51-3.
