The National Rugby Sevens League resumes today with the Rujumba Circuit at Kings Park Arena, Bweyogerere.
Heathens are on a tough road to increasing their advantage over the competition.
They are in first place with 56 points, four ahead of Pirates (54) and Jinja Hippos in third with 51 after three circuits.
Heathens earned victories in Entebbe and Arua.
They defeated Jinja Hippos in both finals.
Last weekend at Greenlight Stadium, Arua, tries from Joaquin Chisano and Malcolm Daniel Okello helped the yellow brigade to secure a 10-00 victory.
A victory at Rujumba 7s will strengthen their hold on the National Title, which KOBs has won for the previous two years.
After a two-week hiatus, the league will resume with Tooro 7s in Buhinga, Kyabazinga 7s in Bugembe, and Buffaloes 7s in Kyadondo, where the overall champion will be announced.
The Rujumba 7s is hosted in honor of Henry Rujumba, a former player for the Pirates and the National team who passed away in 2015 after collapsing at Kampala University, where he was a lecturer.
