Trailing 6-10, with seconds to end the game and with Kobs fans jubilating looming victory, Heathens? captain Michael Wokorach picked the ball from Philip Wokorach to score the try that helped Heathens turn the tables and eventually win.

After the game, Heathens coach Brian Tabaruka admitted that it was a tense encounter.

?It was a nail-biting victory. I thank God we are on top of the table.?

Meanwhile, Kobs captain Brian Odongo felt his side was simply undone by misfortune.

?We had a good game, the boys gave a hundred percent and it was not our day but we shall be back.?

Winger Justin Kimono and James Injongat had given Kobs a 7-0 half time lead courtesy of a try and conversion respectively.
But Heathens regrouped and mounted pressure in the second half and managed to get two penalties scored by Philip Wokorach.

At 7-6, Kobs replied in the same way with a penalty through Ijongat to stretch the lead to 10-6 in the game that had been highly anticipated ? and it sure did not disappoint.

But just when victory seemed to lean in favour of Kobs, Wokorach scored the try that gave Heathens the narrow win that places them top of the pack at the close of the first round of the season.

They lead with 26 points, one better than second-placed Sadolin Mongers.

The second round starts on January 3 with Impis hosting Kobs at Makerere.
