Heathens could be champions in waiting

UTL Kobs, the record league champions in Ugandan rugby could have handed Mtn Heathens their fourth consecutive title last weekend. Had Kobs lost without Heathens taking maximum points, probably chances would be ponderous.

The 22-10 loss in the absence of Fred Mudoola at the Kobs’ technical bench could probably mean they have to win all their last games with seemingly marginal scores if they are to get a meaningful smile at the end, and also wait for feedback from the remaining ties Heathens may falter


Kobs’ situation would make one forget that they started the Nile Special rugby premier league in a high gear with a 97-00 score at the Jinja Dam waters in January. Their only away loss which came to arch rivals might just bury all the brilliant tries, performances and results Kevin Makmot and company had accomplished this season.

This is how far the loss sunk into the Kobs’ squad, a picture which was evidently seen after Heathens’ final try which accounted for the top spot loss on the log. It will remind you of how Justin Kimono shinned the shadow of Heathens’ better days last season.

In simple words, the game was the title decider and Heathens might have already started dusting the podium and setting the ice on the champagne.
