Vainona retain Royal College rugby title

HARARE - Vainona High School successfully defended the Royal College Under-16 girls’ rugby tournament held over the weekend.

Vainona beat Mabvuku High School 5-0 in the final to scoop the title ahead of 13 other schools.

In the semi-finals, Vianona beat Girls High School 15-0 to progress to the finals while Mabvuku beat the hosts 10-5 in the second semi-final.

Royal College eventually finished in third place at the tournament after beating Girls High in the play-off match.

For their efforts, Vainona walked away with a girls’ rugby equipment worth $600 and a shield while second -placed Mabvuku also got rugby equipment worth $400.

The hosts, who finished in third place, also got rugby equipment worth $200.

Royal College Principal Director, Farai Nyamufunga, said plans are underway to also incorporate boys teams at future editions of the tournament.

“We have plans to introduce boys’ rugby tournament but for now lets us spot the girl child because this is where the sponsorship is lacking,” Nyamufunga told the Daily News yesterday.

“We have noticed that sponsorship is lacking in girls rugby but the girl child should be supported to create a gender equality base.

“Currently the event is sponsored by Royal College but we are still chasing for a sponsor, we hope to have sponsors next year. This will make our event bigger and I am also happy with the talent shown by these juniors.”

Some of the schools that participated include;Roosevelt, Morgan High, Lord Malvern, Hatfield Girls High, Goromonzi, and Kuwadzana 2 High School.
