Zimbabwe Sables Ready To Host Cranes



Zimbabwe Sables will be hosting Uganda’s Cranes in their return leg of the Victoria Cup at the Machinery Exchange Stadium, Harare Sports Club on Saturday the 24th of August.

The Sables are enjoying their unbeaten run after recording victories against all three opponents Kenya, Uganda and Zambia, but the men in green and white promise not to be complacent ahead of the Cranes.

Team Manager Jason Maritz said: “We are currently in camp preparing for Uganda, it will not be an easy match and at the back of our minds we know that the race for the championship is grounds enough for everyone to com harder at us.”

“We have had a little bit more time to prepare for them and we are ready for another intense encounter. 

“The Cranes are a tough side and they are coming for us, we are not taking this game lightly and we will brush up on previous mistakes.”

Zimbabwe has been slapped with injuries that will once again result in a few team changes, previously the team lost Brendon Mandivenga who was the skipper at the time and he has been ruled out for the rest of the competition.

Explosive centre Takudzwa Chieza has not recovered from a hamstring strain and will be available for the Cranes match, tentatively stalwart flanker Blithe Mavesera could miss out on the match because of a groin sprain, Matthew Mc Nab is also not available for section due to injury and Camron Harris who had been called in for this matches training squad is also injured and ruled out.

The Sables have call on Saope Soko, a centre playing for the London Irish Wild Geese which is a feeder team to the London Irish first team and could use the services of another loose forward in Dylan Grogan who plays either a lock or a flanker.
