Tsomondo in line for glory

HARARE - Tapiwa Tsomondo is hoping to crown a memorable season when he lines up off the bench for the DHL Western Province Under-21 team in today's Absa Currie Cup Provincial Under-21 final against the Blue Bulls.

The former Dale College and Prince Edward flank has been on song since making his debut for Western Province U21 this season.

He has gone on to rack in seven tries, four coming in WP’s 51-23 destruction over the Sharks in the round robin stage.

Last weekend, Tsomondo came off the bench to help his side to a 41-17 semi-final win over Free State.

DHL WP Under-21 coach John Dobson said his players owed it to themselves to end the season with a winner’s medal.

“We are fortunate that we are able to choose a relatively unchanged team that did a good job (in the semifinals) last week without playing particularly well,” Dobson told the Western Province official website.

“Up front, the same pack starts with just two changes on the bench where Jade Kriel, a specialist lock, comes in to replace Devon Nash and (prop) Chippie Oelofse comes in for Wes Adonis.

“We are very excited about this game, obviously.

“We have had a good season and it’s great that we get to test ourselves against the Bulls in what is an old, old rivalry. This group has always possessed a great work-ethic and it’s a tight group.

“We have been the best side on the competition over the season and we need to do all we can to crown that on Saturday against a strong, big Bulls team.”
