*Betway Kobs 55-09 Warriors
*Hippos 38-08 Impis
*Pirates 36-08 Mongers
*Rams 13-14 Rhinos
*Buffaloes 03-39 Heathens


Betway Kobs proved too good for Warriors with a commanding 55-09 win on Match-day two of the Nile Special Stout Rugby Premiership at Legends.

The game, dubbed Mileke Shield, was played in honour of the Late Patrick Othieno Mileke for another year running.

Mileke, dad to Joseph Aredo (Kobs) and Warriors duo Gabriel and Erasmus Aredo, passed away in 2019.

Aredo owned the fixture on the day; scoring a try and making five conversions as Kobs sailed through in-front of a sizeable cheering crowd.

Pius Ogena extended his opening day form with two tries and so did Brian Ochan and Justin Kimono while Collins Kimbowa and James Odong crossed the line twice.

Betway Kobs has won two of their opening fixtures with a try bonus point – They beat Rhinos 51-00 in the opener at King’s Park in Bweyogerere.

Kobs made a couple of changes to the team that beat Rhinos; Michael Otto replaced Brian Ecodu, Wilobo Mukili and Adrian Kasito never made the Matchday squad among other changes.

Ogena, who scored four tries in Bweyogerere, set the tone for a 31-06 lead at halftime.

Richard Kinyai contributed all Warriors points with the boot.

Betway Kobs remain on top with five points while Heathens are second after their 39-03 win over Buffaloes at Kyadondo.

Next for Kobs is a home game against Buffaloes on Saturday, March 20.
