James Ijonget, KOBS’ fly half beat Pirates Ivan Magomu and Heathens Aziz Khan to scoop the Real Stars rugby player of the April.
The awards were held at club 256 in Lugogo on Tuesday 4th May 2021.
If you look at the top try scorers table you may not find Ijongets name among the first five. But if you follow the games, his role and value to the KOBS team cannot be overstated.
Throughout the month of April he has been very instrumental in the wins against Mongers.
He helped the Kampala Old boys to an all important win against champions Heathens with five penalties.
He concluded the month with a sublime display over Hippos to make sure KOBS ended the month at the top of the table. March’s winner of the real sports awards was Hippos Maxwell Ebonga.
