Zambia Rugby Union results


Gearing up to host the oldest Sevens tournament, wreaked havoc in Kabwe at the weekend and wrapped up the Zambia Rugby Football Union (ZRFU) Heroes Seven-A-Side rugby championships by sending “Men At Work” Diggers, to the cleaners with a runaway 38-0 scoreline.

Zambia Rugby Union general secretary Martin Musunka confirmed the results in a
statement to ZANIs in Lusaka today.

Mufulira, who will this Saturday host Mufulira Sevens tournament, were in an
uncompromising mood and walloped Diggers in the final with effortless ease.

To proceed to the concluding stage of the tournament which was hosted by Zambia
National Service in Kabwe for the first time, Mufulira had a field day at the
pen-ultimate phase and handed the local side – Eagles with a 26-7 defeat.

In the other semi final match played, Diggers booked their berth to the final after
they narrowly pipped Green Buffaloes 21-19.

In the quarter finals, Mufulira eliminated Red Arrows 28-7, Eagles emerged
victorious over “Powerhouse” Lusaka 21-14 and Diggers kicked out “Rampant Lions”
Nchanga 21-7 while Buffaloes sent reeling “Killer Bees” Ndola Wanderers 28-14.

The next Sevens stage will be the Mufulira Sevens which will be played next Saturday
where all clubs will be parading their Sevens skills.

All the ZRFU affiliated clubs are being asked to ensure that they prepare and
subscribe for the Mufulira Sevens.

The season has broken off from the 15s main league and clubs are now engaged in the
local Sevens circuit and all clubs should participate in all the events.

After the Mufulira Sevens, the focus will then shift on Ndola for the Mosi Sevens,
which has replaced the Rhino Sevens.

According to the hosts’ organising committee, preparations for the former Rhino
Sevens have reached an advanced stage and are promising the best treat on May 26.
