Makalama stands in way of Seguya’s first win in four

By Deus Bugembe

Former Rugby Cranes teammates Robert Seguya and Brian Makalama are set to square off against each other as respective coaches of Victoria and Ndovu in tomorrow’s Bamburi Series match day two tie in Kakamega.

Seguya has lost three of his last games as coach in all competitions. These include the 10-11 Hana SS loss to Kololo SS in the Super Eight Schools final, the Protector Series final, in which Protectors lost to Crocs 19-17 and Victoria’s opening Bamburi Series tie against Chui 10-3.

School boy errors
The Victoria coach, however, has plenty of reason to believe his side can end his unconvincing run of four straight losses as coach.
“Numerous school boy errors let us down against Chui. It could have been down to the inexperience at this stage in our side but we have rectified them thus making us ready to bounce back,” said Seguya.

Both Seguya and Makalama were part of the Ugandan side that emerged as African Champions in 2007 under the guidance of Yayiro Kasasa. Rwenzori, the second Ugandan franchise will rest this weekend and travel to Nakuru to face Kifaru on May 17.
