After falling to Buzz Pirates over the weekend with a 28-11 loss during the Nile Special Rugby Premiership first round Finale at Legends Rugby Grounds, Betway Kobs will have to do something quick in order to swiftly return to winning ways as they face Rams on Saturday.

The loss is Kobs' second this season which now leaves them two points behind Pirates who lead the table with 37 points.

Kobs' prop, Collin Kimbowa who had a very long day in office against Pirates has his eyes set on round two of the campaign and with Rams on their way, the Rugby Cranes star is craving a home win.

''We have already re-grouped ourselves and the loss to Pirates is now history to us.''

''We must return to winning ways and since we are home, I smell a win here,'' noted Kimbowa.

Despite Kobs' good record against the Mulago-based Rams, Kimbowa warns his side against complacency in order to avoid another stunner.

''We have to take each game seriously in the second round and to do so, the boys must really work hard.''

''The loss to Pirates was also an indicator that there is no mediocre team in the top flight hence need to take the 'bull' by the horns right from the start,'' Kimbowa added.

With Brian Odong out injured, Collin Kimbowa has a huge role of leading the front row.

His combination with Adnan Mutebi and Edrine Ssempebwa was the first ever and it had clear punch holes during the Pirates encounter.

After the relatively shaky display of the above trio during the Pirates tie, questions of their combination still linger in Kobs' fans circles.

However, with Rams' recent poor form, the trio might use this weekend's tie as an arena to regain their feet.
