Toyota Buffaloes will go all out to end Hima Cement Heathens as the Rugby Premiership second round returns with a floodlights game at Kyadondo.

Heathens top the standings with 43 points after nine games and will look to stretch their lead before second placed Kobs (39) come in action the following day.

Hosts Buffaloes occupy fifth place with 22 points on the 10-team log and will be targeting return to winning ways after a 10-15 loss to Stanbic Black Pirates last Friday.

Buffaloes where on course for a draw before Pirates struck at the death despite earlier efforts from Ronald Oketayot.

The visitors on the other hand, defending champions and still unbeaten in the ongoing campaign, beat Shell Rimula Rhinos 69-06 and will be hoping for another display.

Heathens beat Buffaloes 25-00 earlier this month in February in another floodlights game at Kyadondo courtesy of player-of-the-match performance from Joseph Oyet who garnered two tries.

*Heathens 06-00 Kobs

*Heathens 34-18 Mongers
