KAMPALA- Brian Odong is perhaps the only DMark Kobs player who didn’t get lost in the celebrations that followed the 19-11 win over rivals MTN Heathens.
The captain saw something they ought to do better. “We must cut down on the number of penalties we conceded,” Odong said.
Over the past four years, Heathens have not had the kickers, besides Philip Wokorach before his injury, to punish such mistakes.

“Other games would be much harder if a team makes their kicks,” the prop, rejuvenated after a long injury lay-off, added.
Their main infringements at the breakdown, like most Ugandan teams, included tacklers not rolling away, holding onto the ball and joining from the side.
Coach Fred Mudoola will have his team’s endurance tested by the youngest and fittest side in the land. No wonder he even went on the attack after the Heathens’ game.
“We are way better than Heathens,” the Kobs coach said. On the day, they indeed were but the closing statement won’t be ready until next February.
“Our target was to win with a bonus point so I am disappointed,” an emotional Mudoola added. They either vindicate that conviction or Buffaloes make him swallow those words.
