“We hope this will go a long way in developing the skills of players,” said Manicaland Zimbabwe Rugby Union chairman, Richard Chiwandire, on the sidelines of the official hand-over. “This club rugby has great potential and I would like local companies to emulate what Delta Beverages has done.”
In their quest for good results, Mutare Sports Club recently acquired the services of a new coach, Francis Makoni, a move that assistant coach, Mackenzie Munetsi, said was evidence that they meant business this season.
The super league is expected to kick-off on April 19 with nine teams, as the NRL expands the reach of the game across the country. In fixtures released last week, MSC have a mammoth task against 2013 runners-up, Old Georgians (OGS), in the season opener in Harare.
Perennial finalist OGS are one of the toughest teams in the league, but Munetsi said the duel would be a good test of his team’s strength so early in the season.
“It’s a good thing the fixtures came out early. It will be a good test of our strength to kick off the season against one of the best teams in the league. The boys are really psyched up to enter the season with a bang and make a loud statement,” he said.
The club will travel to Harare on Saturday for the pre-season Old Hararians rugby tournament, which is expected to draw all the nine super league teams in a round-robin tourney.
