Henry Nsekuye, who has been out since game week eight, was the primary catalyst as Impis picked up their seventh win; for Nsekuye, returning to action at this stage of the season is critical.

Impis Rugby Club wrapped up their last home appearance this season with a 16-14 win over Rhinos on Saturday in the Nile Special Rugby Premiership.

Henry Nsekuye, who has been out since game week eight, was the primary catalyst as Impis picked up their seventh win; for Nsekuye, returning to action at this stage of the season is critical.

“It felt good to return to action considering I last played in the first round of the league; I am also happy that we won our last home game of the season,” Nsekuye told Pulse Sports.

“At one point, I wasn’t even sure if I would be re-joining the team this season, but thanks to the physios at Holistic Physiocare for the commendable job.”

The win took Impis to sixth position on 29 points, four above seventh-placed Mongers after 16 game days.

And with the relegation fights above them, the fly-half emphasises that the target remains to do well in the final two league games of the season and finish strong.

“We will try and collect as many points as possible from the remaining two games left so that we can finish as high as we can on the log.”

Henry Nsekuye inspired Impis to a bright start of the Nile Special Rugby Premiership season, winning their first five games until Heathens ended the run at Kyadondo Rugby Club on game day six.
