Locals sides make bow in inaugural Protector Series

KAMPALA. Rugby fans will be happy to trek to Kyadondo after being starved of rugby action since early February when the National League ended.

This weekend sees the birth of a new tourney in the Protector Super Series Rugby. Four franchises have been created from the local clubs to take part in the four week contest.

Crocs, Fimbo, Magicians and Protectors are the four new outfits. The exercise excludes national team players, who are already training ahead of the international season. “The aim of this series is to select two teams that will represent Uganda in the Bamburi Rugby Super Series,” explained URU secretary Michael Wandera.

“It will also expose young players that have not yet won any international caps.” Protector under the flag of Uganda Health Marketing Group has injected $40,000 (Shs100m) into the four-week event.There is a prize money of Shs10m for the franchises with the winners pocketing Shs4m.

THE FRANCHISES Protectors: Heathens and Buffaloes (Coached by Robert Sseguya)Crocs: Kobs, Impis and Warriors (Coached by Fred Mudoola)Fimbo: Pirates and Rhinos (Coached by Sam Ahamya)Magicians: Mongers and Kyadondo sides (Coached by O’Brian Tindy)
