Venue: Dam Waters, Jinja

Teams visiting Jinja Hippos have made it a habit to arrive late at Dam Waters and the Hippos will hope Kobs will keep time on Saturday for their fixture. Their worry should however be on whether they can keep the Kobs attack at bay and penetrate their wall at the back which has conceded one try in six games. 

Hippos will look at their strong home record and form for courage where they have won three in three with star player Maxwell Ebonga taking centre stage with the second highest tries of the season (5) and best kicker of the league so far. 

Kobs welcome league top try scorer Pius Ogena back from international duty in the Rugby 7s who will want to challenge the Hippos defence if Kobs are to stay at the top of the log for the sixth week in a row. 

A win for Hippos will blow the title race wide open if Pirates and Heathens win their games on the same day to get back into the title challenge. A win for the visitors will strengthen their hold at the top of the table and boost their confidence if any was needed with a win against one of their major title challengers for the season. Expect a mouth watering fixture with the sea animals coming in full force against the blue army
