Title gone but Heathens promise ‘bloody’ display


KAMPALA- A visit to MTN Heathens base at Kyadondo paints a picture of ‘men on a mission’.

Heathens, already out of contention for the title which was claimed by Kobs last weekend, are going about their business as if they still have the ‘Holy Grail’ in sight.

The business end of the season brought no good returns for them as they lost their footing in quest of retaining the title with that 10-5 loss to Entebbe Mongers at the ‘House of Pain’ during Week 8. But skipper Michael Wokorach is happy with the commitment of the players.

“We have a strong mentality,” said Wokorach, who has had to do without several injured senior players Mathias Ochwo, Alex Mubiru and Jonathan Bishop Onen among others this season.

“We have fought for every result and promise our fans that Saturday’s show against Kobs will be ‘bloody’. They haven’t beaten us since 2010 and that will not change.”

Kobs beat Heathens 19-11 in the first round but the latter can take some gloss off their league glory by defeating them with a larger margin and retain the Lions Cup – a championship contested over two legs by the two clubs.
