What you need to know:

Talons' steam has run out since key figures Shafia Ntabazi and Ethan Kalungi left the side. Such was their impact that what was a 1,118 lead over Colts and a 682 advantage over Astros has been nearly halved to 598 and 342 respectively.


Uganda Swimming League leaders Talons (13,853 points) have to watch their backs after coming third in three consecutive match days.

The overall table leaders are in free-fall and if they do not arrest their current form, they could be bottom of the table by Match 32.


Colts are making up an average of 173.3 on Talons every match day and should that continue, the former will need four matches to make up the 598 points difference.


Astros are working almost as fast as the difference between them and Talons is now just 342 points. Astros have been making up an average 113 on Talons and that could increase when Ethan Kunihira, who has missed two match days returns for Match 29 on September 9.
