Kimono recently underwent the knife after he picked up an injury while on national duty
Justin Kimono may have spent most of 2016 minus his boots, but is proving that he is still Uganda rugby’s main savage after posting a gym session on his Facebook account.
The Rugby Cranes’ No. 14 jersey and Betway Kobs senior player was put through his paces with an intense ropes drill as he maintains his fitness post-injury.
“Personal best #110kg shoulder press,”he wrote. “rugby I’m coming back to kill u”
Kimono has quietly been going about his rehabilitation with the Betway Kobs.
The 22-year-old was released from ex coach Robert Seguya’s Rugby Cranes have a buffet of international Test matches to ingest between June and July that included the Elgon Cup and Rugby Afrique Tier 1A matches, and it appeared then that his rugby year might be over.
Kimono recently underwent the knife after he picked up an injury while on national duty.
Despite being injured, Kimono has been firmly in the headlines after the rugby fraternity and media put the Uganda Rugby Union on the spot for sidelining the player when he needed them the most. The surgery cost the wing Shs 6m. URU did not pick the tab. No. Kimono’s club, Betway Kobs, chipped in with Shs 3.5m, while his parents cleared the rest.
But now the focus will move back onto the field, and how Kimono is utilizing gym sessions will have a major say in whether or not he is Betway Kobs’ savior this upcoming season after they were flattened by rivals Toyota Buffalos in that ‘final’ (third place playoff) of what had been an exciting Nile Special Uganda Cup.
