Western Bulls’ scrum-half  Felix Bukhutse is set to miss out on the next 3 KRU Championship matches after he was slapped with a 3-match with a probability of facing a lengthy suspension until he is signed legally.

Bukhutse was named at scrum-half last weekend by Western Bulls in their 3-3 draw against MMUST over the weekend.

It turned out that the player who joined the Echulusi from Kabras RFC was not properly registered and was ineligible to play for the club.

“Felix Bukhutse to serve a 3-match suspension and remains ineligible’ to represent Western Bulls until he is effectively registered. No financial sanction accorded to both player and club,” reads a statement by KRU.


As a result, Western Bulls will be deemed to have lost the match with MMUST getting the maximum points. However, Bulls will not be deducted any points.

MMUST climb to position 1 in the KRU Championship log after getting the 5 maximum points. On the other hand, Western Bulls stagnate at position 5 with 18 points.
