Tough Test For Cheetahs In Dubai

ZIMBABWE Sevens face their toughest IRB World Sevens Series group stage today when they play defending champions New Zealand, Australia and Wales in Pool A of the Dubai Sevens.

It is a hostile draw for the Cheetahs, but one that will prepare them well for the Sevens World Cup in March next year.
In team news, South Africa-based winger Gordon Pangeti, was not included in the squad for the Dubai Sevens. He will however replace fellow winger Alex Ndangana for the George Sevens in South Africa next week.
Hooker Manasah Sita, who was overlooked for the World Cup qualifiers in Tunisia on October, has joined a First Division club in Germany. He left the country last week.
