Off two back-to-back wins including a heavy 67-05 win over Impis, Heathens could be ready to stand up and be counted – boosted by the timely return of Michael Wokorach and Cox Muhigwa.

The duo have been training fully and could help their side break their rival’s dominance so far – with their names already slotted in the day’s team list.

Wokorach reportedly hurt his fingers in Uganda Cranes’ outings in Cape Town while Cox has been nursing a shoulder injury.

Kobs have James Ijongat, Adrian Kasiito and Alhajji Manano at their disposal after defeating Mongers 22-09 last weekend. They were denied a bonus point but walked away victors.

Last term saw Heathens enjoy an unbeaten first round but will now try to avoid fourth defeat of the season.

Heathens are fifth, 12 points adrift leaders Kobs and all will be at stake as both sides seek to display might and supremacy.
