Lawrence Ssebuliba’s second half tries were very crucial in the 23-18 win and Wokorach lauded his teammates’ mentality and determination.

“I should say its a sweet win,” the star spoke immediately after the match.

“Our season just began this year in 2018. Us the players we sat down and said we are going to play for each other and die for each other.

“It showed today, the mentality, ability and determination from the team.”

Heathens suffered pockets of resistance especially towards half time when Adrian Kasito handed Kobs a narrow lead with a try however, Wokorach was pleased with the response.

“At some point we were down, but we didn’t give up. I am very proud of the team because they stood strong. Surely it was a sweet victory.”

On the three losses Heathens have suffered this season, Wokorach was quick to call them history – promising better ahead.

What happened last year stayed last year, so as a team we’re doing our best and it shows character. Last weekend we put a big score.

We are just building on towards the end of the season and we want to win all our games.

The derby was Wokorach’s first match since he returned from Dubai and Cape Town with the national team. He had been nursing an injury on his fingers.

“I think am getting back to full fitness. Am back from injury and a long race playing on the national team but i think am ready to give the team my all and am pushing forward with them.”

Heathens make a trip to the “house of pain” on the weekend to face Mongers. Coach Mohammed Athiyo’s are unbeaten in 2018.
