Kobs dominated the first half taking it 12-00 with Ronald Musajjagulanyago who recently returned from Kenya based Harlequins scoring the first try of the game that Ivan Kirabo failed to convert.
The Kobs went on to dominate most of the phases of play and this resulted into another try from former Rhinos player, Robert Aziku. The try was supplemented by a conversion from former Kabras Sugar star Kirabo bringing the score to 12-00.
The Heathens came more determined in the second half, putting alot of pressure on the Kobs, resulting into tries from veteran Alex Mubiru and Micheal Wokorach. The extras were added by the flawless boot of former Buffaloes winger Kevin Keremundu to bring the Heathens to a come from behind 15-12 win.
