Heathens suffered their first loss of the season at the hands of their perennial rivals Kobs on Saturday at Legends.

Heathens struggled to hold their line in the first half and fell behind 20-03 despite getting on board first through Simon Okwera’s penalty.

Converted tries from center Edgar Sseruwagi and scrum-half Davis Kiwalabye coupled with Joseph Aredo’s early penalty and James Ijongat’s drop goal put Heathens in a hole a little too deep.

“They came out really hard in the first half like they wanted it more.

“We fought hard in the second half but were late for the win,” Heathens captain Michael Wokorach said of the game.

The fixture was viewed by many as the tile decider as the winner of the game would gain an advantage over their opponent.

The defeat left the 2017 league champions three points behind with five games to the end of the season but Wokorach has not given up on the title.

“We are not going to put our heads down, we are going to pick ourselves up and push. It is not over.”
