The Uganda Rugby Union (URU) has released the draft fixture for the 2022 National Rugby 15s League.

The season will get underway on January 8 2022 and five games will be played each match-week (Saturday) before the first round climaxes on February 26 2022.

The second round kicks off on March 5 2022 before ending on April 8 2022 when the overall will be crowned.

KOBs beat Pirates 15-05 on the closing day of the season on May 8 2021 to win the title unbeaten last season.

Unlike last season where the league was played under a one-leg format, the home and away format is back this time round.
