Police Handball Club is back in the camp as they prepare for the final matches of the national championship.
The tournament had been put on halt due to the ongoing East African Military games of which APR handball Club is part.
Police coach, Assistant Inspector of Police (AIP) Antoine Ntabanganyimana said his players have resumed training ahead of their early next month’s match against College Inyemeramihigo of Rubavu.
The defending champions are left with five matches to play including their last game of the season against their closest challenger, APR.
Other remaining matches will be against ES Urumuri of Karongi, University of Rwanda-College of Arts and Social Science (UR-CASS) and UR-College of Education.
The law enforcers, who are looking for their third straight league cup, lead the table with 39 maximum points in 13 matches, two ahead of APR.
“We always believe that losing a single point means that we have surrendered the championship and that’s why we strive for maximum points in each and every match and that remains unchanged even in our last five matches,” AIP Ntabanganyimana said.
“The remaining matches are crucial and anything can happen; but we don’t want that and that’s why we have started preparations and training this early to fix any gaps. We have our final match against APR, which is another significant game that can change everything if we lose it,” he added.
APR have lost on one match at the hand of Police, who beat them 23-21 in their first leg.
The four-time national league champions have so far won six trophies in the 2015/2016 season including East and Central African Handball Federation Cup, Beach tournament, Heroes Day Cup and the International Genocide Memorial Cup.
