Sables off to a Winning Start in Tunisia
The Zimbabwe Sables, the national representative rugby team, got off to a successful start oftheirAfricaGroup1. A tournament in Tunisia, triumphing over the hosts by 30–‐14. The Sables were promoted to this competition after an unbeaten season in 2011 and drawn against the North African side who had a number of players who ply their trade in Europe.
Feedback from Tunisia suggested the performance was a spirited team effort, with the Sables coming together well as a team. The result of this game means the Zimbabwe national team will play Uganda on Saturday (14thJuly) in a chance to win the tournament.
This result ensured that the Sables remain on course to qualify for the Rugby World Cup in England in 2015, as the team retain a place in the Africa Group 1A tournament next year. If the Sables can win the tournament in 2013 they will qualify to the big guest event in World Rugby in 2015.
