However, a year later, Impis has made a very big change. They reached one Sevens final and two semifinals.
In addition to that, they were able to retain their Uganda Cup Shield and are currently unbeaten in the rugby premier league. Katuntu also laced up his boots and returned to full duty on the pitch as a scrumhalf.
The team is ecstatic and are on cloud nine, a fact very visible to anyone and they are also not trying to hide it. They currently sit in the fourth position on the table, with the same points as the Heathens who are the defending champions.
Impis is finally reaching the level of the teams that used to be far better than them in previous seasons.
The five wins in five matches this season have not been very assertive and clear-cut. Impis has been staying within striking range of their opponents, but after gaining on them, they would defend until the final whistle.
Impis have given away the losing bonus points every weekend and this shows that they are not yet on top. However, though, despite still having a long way to go, they are now far from where they started.
One of the key factors to their improvement this season is flyhalf Henry Nsekuye’s reliable boot. He not only is the league’s top kicker at the moment but also kicks range and accuracy.
This has enabled Impis to play in the right places.
Many have said different things about Impis, some comparing it to Arsenal being an elephant sitting on a branch.
And the honest truth is that Impis is not there yet despite rubbing shoulders with the big boys this season. However though, people should not assume that Impis doesn’t know this.
