Coming off opening round losses, both Fimbo and Magicians will be desperate to get their campaigns up and running when they face off in the early kick off of the Protector Super Series Rugby at Kyadondo today.Fimbo fell to Crocs 34-28 while Magicians were humbled by Protectors 22-9.
Both franchises were wanting in defence last week as they conceded a handful of avoidable tries. “The team had not jelled well as most of the players were playing together for the first time” said Fimbo coach Sam Ahamya, who expects his side to put up a solid challenge this afternoon. Magicians themselves know how crucial picking up maximum points will be in this fixture.
“Everyone on board knows that we need to win if we are to brighten our chances of making it as a Bamburi side,” said Magicians coach O’Brian Tindi.
Meanwhile log leaders Crocs hope to stretch their lead at the top when they take on tournament favorites Protectors. “I expect the boys to play hard running rugby like they did last week because we are facing tougher opposition this time around,” said Crocs coach Allan Musoke, a Ugandan rugby legend in his own right, who made his coaching debut last week. Retired Musoke is reportedly the leading try scorer for the Rugby Cranes.
