Cheetahs remain on course

HARARE - The Zimbabwe Sevens rugby team is still on course of securing World Rugby Sevens core status after good outing on the first day the Hong Kong Sevens yesterday.

The Cheetahs began their qualifying campaign with a resounding 36-0 win over Guyana in the morning.

A hat-trick from Germany-based Tafadzwa Chitokwindo was the highlight of the Pool G match.

Daniel Hondo’s side followed that victory with another 41-0 victory over Tonga to finish the first day on a high.

Zimbabwe’s final pool match is on this morning will be more of an academic nature as it is against Spain, a side with a 100 percent record in the Pool G.

Only bragging right will be at stake as both sides have already qualified for the quarter-finals.

With an 77-0 aggregate score line in their opening two matches, Chitokwindo is confident the Cheetahs will reach their goal in Hong Kong.

“It’s was everyone’s dream to have a good start,” the high-flying winger told the South China Morning Post.

“We have put big scores on the board and the guys are happy, they are chuffed to have managed to beat some of these big guys.

“We knew we were going to do well, but the extent that we are doing well, like the high scores, is unexpected.”
