Despite a lackluster first round of defeats, determination and self-belief by players saw Hima Cement Heathens spring back on course in the second round and eventually winning the 2014/15 Nile Special Rugby League.
Team captain Michael Wokorach said his side were inspired by “self-belief” that kept them “chasing even when we were trailing behind our opponents”.
That, he said in his speech moments before being crowned winners, helped them win all their second round games.
The impressive Heathens were crowned champions by Nile Breweries marketing director Daniel Ogong at Kyadondo Rugby Club on Saturday.
Heathens 15 Buffaloes 12
Pirates 29 Impis 25
Rhinos 11 Kobs 29
Mongers 7 Warriors 12
