The Heathens' loss to Black Pirates came a little too late in their season to cause any problems.

And up next for the Kyadondo outfit is the short walk across the road at the home of their bitter rivals Kobs.

Kobs have the unfortunate job of hosting their local rivals on the day they will be receiving their Nile Special Premier Rugby League trophy, coming off a terrible week at the office in which the Heathens lost their first game in what should have been a record-breaking season for the Kyadondo-based club.

Heathens coach Muhammad Athiyo was relieved this happened after they had wrapped up the title and made reference to this happening to the best of them.

"I am grateful this happened when it did after we had wrapped up the title but it was bound to happen. All teams go through slumps and this was ours," he said.

This will be another chance for Heathens to restore parity and finish their season the best way they could.

Since Kobs are already a forgone conclusion to finish 3rd on the table, the two teams are more or so fighting for pride. With the season the Legends boys have had, they won't be rolling over just because their local rivals say so.
