Junior Sables target gold

Story by Lawrence Trusida, Sports Editor

THE Zimbabwe under-20 Rugby team, the Junior Sables are looking to consolidate their position on the continent as they face Namibia in their second match at the ongoing Barthes Trophy at Harare Sports Club this Wednesday.

Zimbabwe walloped Tunisia 46-21 in the opening encounter of the 2024 Barthes Trophy.

Despite putting up an excellent attacking display, head coach Shaun de Souza wants to tighten up the defence.

“We just have a few areas to polish up on, of course it was first game so nerves also played a part, but then the defence needs to be a bit tighter and we have to be more clinical as a team,” he said.

A win for Zimbabwe will give the Young Sables a chance to retain the African title, after winning it in the last two editions.

The first match of the day will see Kenya taking on Tunisia at Harare Sports Club.
