CHAMPIONS Buffaloes have started daily training sessions ahead of the new rugby season which gets underway next month according to Gerald Nsenga, Buffaloes coach and Vice President of the National Rugby Federation.

The Remera based side, which has won the last three league titles, is training at Rugunga as they plot for a fourth unprecedented title.

“We want to become the first club to win four trophies in a row and to achieve that; we must have good pre-season training.”

“We will play a couple of friendlies to fine tune ourselves before the season starts,” Nsenga said

Meanwhile, the Secretary General of the National Rugby Federation Janvier Ugeziwe told this paper that the executive committee will meet tomorrow to set the date for the league start.

“The league will start next month but we are meeting tomorrow to set the actual date and discuss other pending issues.” 

Eight clubs are expected to take part in the competition. These include reigning champions Buffaloes, Lion de Fer, UNR Grizzlies, Sharks, Simba, Puma, Gorillas and ISAE.
