ZRU to get tough

By Brain Murandu

THE Zimbabwe Rugby Union (ZRU) has decided to get tough on indiscipline as its premier league programme enters the fifth round this weekend.

Noddy Kanyangarara, an executive member of the union and senior team manager, confirmed to IndependentSport the ZRU executive would meet before the weekend matches and deliberate on disturbances that characterised the Mabvuku versus Harare Sports Club match at Sports Club.

IndependentSport last week witnessed the disturbances that started soon after Mabvuku player Manuel Sande’s substitution. The player attacked ex-Churchill High student and Harare Sports Club reserve player Suden Takavarasha accusing him of having mocked him while he was playing.

A free-for-all meleé ensued as fans and players traded punches on the scene that generated into uncontrollable chaos.

The ZRU’s fifth round premier league programme, however, continues this weekend with several teams likely to miss the services of some players on national sevens duty in Kenya.

The sevens technical department had not decided on the final team travelling to Kenya today by the time of going to press.

Log-leaders Harare Sports Club travel to Bulawayo hoping to extend their stay on top against fading Old Miltonians.

Defending champions Old Hararians host Busters of Bulawayo in a potential thriller. Both Busters and OH are tied on 14 points, thus an interesting duel looms.
