Rhinos
Rhinos in a game against Kobs at Kampala rugby club

Rhinos were the third rugby club to be formed in Uganda. It was formed in 1994 by some sports enthusiast who had already formed a successful Basketball Club. A lot of the basketball players actually doubled as rugby players featuring actively in both the basketball and rugby leagues. As the club grew more players joined the club and it grew into a formidable side. 2008 season has been a very difficult season for the club after losing its sponsors Centenary Bank who opted out after feeling that rugby did not meet their target group. This affected the financial operations of the club who had to go back to old players and well-wishers for financial support. Thanks to these people and some players and officials digging into their pockets, the club managed to scrape through the season finishing fifth probably one of its worst finishes in its short history. The club is now embarking on a serious recruitment drive and has tied up with St Lawrence School that they coach and hope to use as a feeder into the club. In that respect next year the second team Kifaru will participate in the shield thus giving the younger chaps a chance to horn their skills at a lower level before moving up. With the new set of young players coming through and hopefully securing a sponsor in 2009, this coming year will be a reorganizing and rebuilding time for the team peaking in the next 2 years. The other challenge in 2009 is to get the old boys back into management of the club so that we can tap into their experience, wisdom and contacts. With more heads involved a lot will be achieved. We shall make no predictions for 2009 as our mission is to start the process rebuilding.A top 4 finish will be good enough.
