In an interview, Kayamba of Mufulira Leopards declared that Zambia will return a better side from the Commonwealth Games.

“We are happy to be the first Zambian rugby team to participate at the games. Being our first time there it will not be easy,” Kayamba said.

“But we will never come back the same from the games. Our standard of play will change as we will learn many things. The nation should just support us,” the ex-Diggers and KPF player said.

Meanwhile, local rugby icon Tom Chaloba is also excited that the nation will be fielding a rugby team for the first time at the Commonwealth Games.

“This is the time we should all come together as Zambians and rally behind our team. The experience to be gained from the tournament is immense and a learning curve,” he said.

  1. Like in soccer, experience and learn one or two things.
    Why not win tournament at debut?
    No heart of winning.

  2. Seriously we dont need people like Terry every time they want to learn, ku training you learn, tournament you want to learn. Mudala aim higher. We have seen countries like Craotia first time appearance ku tournament, France 98…they went and played Semi final with host nation. Why waste time if you are going to learn. Go and win iwe mbuva shaa
