Diggers target Rugby league title


Diggers Rugby Club captain Mwansa Maipambe says his side’s prime target this year will be to wrestle the national league title from champions Red Arrows.

Maipambe said the Kitwe outfit head into the 2016 season determined to put behind their poor fortunes from the last three seasons.

Diggers finished fifth in the Zambia Rugby Union First Division League with 25 points, 37 behind champions Arrows.

“We are hoping that we will have a better season this year,” Maipambe said.

“At the end of the season we want to win the league while winning cups will be a bonus,” he said.

Diggers led by coach Lawrence Njovu have launched early preparations ahead of this year’s season.

“Diggers has always been known as a big team so our supporters should expect good results. We will not disappoint them this season,” Maipambe said.

The Men at Work last won the league title in 2012 under the late coach Robertson ‘Plough’ Kang’ongwe.

Since then Arrows have dominated the show with a hat-trick of league titles in the past three seasons.
