Sables Face A Tricky Test In Bulawayo

The Sables will tomorrow clash with the unbeaten Namibian side in round four of  the Africa Gold Cup at Hartsfield Grounds in Bulawayo. Zimbabwe are in the verge of  relegation on the league with one draw and two defeats for a mere three points, while Namibia have thoroughly outclassed all teams to top the standings with 15 points.

In another match, bottom-placed Uganda who are still without a point from two previous matches, play Tunisia. Kenya who are in second place with 12 points, resume their campaign next week with a home tie against Tunisia.

However, it is the Sables who have all to go against the high flying Namibian team eager to secure the World Cup ticket which comes with topping this year’s Gold Cup standings. Namibia have been virtually unstoppable as they close in on a sixth consecutive World Cup appearance after seeing off Uganda (56-6), Tunisia (118-0) and Morocco (63-7).

Zimbabwe came close to beating Namibia last season before suffering a 31-26 loss. In June, the Sables also showed some life in the 45-36 defeat against Kenya in Nairobi.

The team has tried to add new blood in the form of flyhalf Hilton Mudariki and forward Antipas Kamkwindo, who are based in England and Germany, respectively.The Cheetahs trio of Shayne Makombe, Tafadzwa Chitokwindo and Connor Pritchard have also been boasted the squad.

Namibia have scored a total of 36 tries, with JC Greyling weighing in with 6 while wing Lesley Klim and fullback Crysander Botha have scored four each.

The Peter de Villiers coached side will end their Gold Cup campaign with a match against Uganda on August 18, the same day that Namibia host Kenya in a top-of-the-table showdown.

Tomorrow’s match will start at 3:30pm with Rugby curtain raiser matches penciled from 9AM till 12:30hrs. Highlanders will take on Bulldogs, while Warriors Ladies face off with Nyambose Ladies in the women’s rugby match . Old Miltonians clash with Matebeleland Warriors whilst the last curtain raiser match will see Milton Elephants taking on Prince Edward Tigers.

In order to be part of the Gold Cup festivities Rugby fans will have to part with $10 for the VIP, $5 for the grand stand and $2 for the rest of the ground.
