Strong Young Sables squad assembled

THE Zimbabwe Under-20 rugby team selectors have cast their selection net wide after including several foreign-based players in their extended training squad of 54 players ahead of next year’s Junior World Rugby Trophy to be held in the capital from April 19 to May 1.

BY DANIEL NHAKANISO

Zimbabwe were in July confirmed as the hosts of the global youth rugby tournament, which will see eight teams battling it out for a spot at the World Rugby Under-20 Championship 2017 on offer for the winner.

The Young Sables technical team are pulling all stops to have the side ready and yesterday made their intentions clear by including a host of former schoolboys now plying their trade at universities in South Africa, Australia and the United Kingdom.

Among the UK-based contingent vying for a final place in the Young Sables squad are Nottingham Academy centre Andy Musvaburi and scrumhalf Ngoni Zinyama.

Australia-based versatile back Tapiwa Mangwana and loose forward Lebogang Ngwenya, who is on a scholarship at Wheeling Jesuit University in West Virginia in the United States, also make up the foreign-based contingent in the side.

Former Zimbabwe Under-18 captain Stephen Bhasera, who is part of the Golden Lions Under-19 set-up, headlines the South Africa-based contingent, which includes Sharks Under-19 prop Justin Mendlehson and Free State-based flank Daniel Nyamugama, among others.

Zimbabwe Under-20 team manager Shaun de Souza said a 90-day training schedule had already been laid out and would get into motion this weekend when the players meet for the first time.

“We (will) assess where they stand in terms of fitness and conditioning,” De Souza said.

“The reason we have cast our net wide is to ensure that we come up with the best possible squad. We are aware that some of the players might not be released by their universities or clubs, that’s why we have announced the extended training squad early so that we have enough time to know who will be available and those who may not be for the tournament,” he said.

Hosts Zimbabwe qualify automatically for the tournament and will be joined by South America’s Uruguay, African qualifier Namibia and Samoa, who were relegated from this year’s U20 Championship.

The remaining four teams will be regional qualifiers from Europe, North America, Oceania and Asia.

    Today, I went to the beach with my children. I found a sea
    shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to her ear and
    screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.

    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off topic but I had to tell someone!

    Hi this is kind of of off topic but I was wanting to know if blogs use WYSIWYG
    editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.

    I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding know-how so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience.
    Any help would be enormously appreciated!
