Rugby Bulls stoke flames

Topflight rugby league sides should not read much into the poor performance of Zvishavane Bulls, as the Midlanders have now turned that around, if threats from chairman Ganizani Ganizani are anything to go by.

Ganizani said this week that his side had found the winning formula and would soon begin to claim the scalps of many of the so-called high-riding outfits. Since their promotion into the topflight league at the beginning of this season, the only rugby club in the asbestos-mining town has recorded a duck in its first three games, with their woes compounded by a tragic road accident that claimed the life of fly-half, Slimfield Moyo, last week.

This happened along the Gweru-Shurugwi road when the team was travelling back from a match in Harare. Their three other players, Masimba Muzenda, Lewis Kuchineyi and Tonderai Bvumbe, escaped with injuries.

Ganizani said that starting with this weekend’s home clash against fading Bulawayo giants, Old Miltonians, equally winless, McAdams Stadium would be turned into a battlefield.

“We admit that we have so far been very mediocre in our performance, but we have since recollected ourselves into become a winning team,” he said. The tough-talking founding member of the Bulls brushed aside reports that panic buttons had been pressed in their camp so early in this season.

“We will not play to survive relegation, but to win the league, so to say we are in a panic mood for fear of the chop is neither here nor there,” said Ganizani. He reiterated that his team would play in honour of the late former Airforce and Gweru Sports Club fly-half Moyo, whose tragic death disturbed not only the Bulls, but the entire National Rugby fraternity, which looked to benefit from his skills.
