Zambia launched the opening round of the 2022 Rugby Africa Cup qualifiers with a loss to Senegal.
The Rugby Africa Cup is part of the Rugby World Cup 2023 qualifying process.
Zambia on Wednesday lost 20-5 to Senegal in their opening Group B game at Nyayo National Stadium in Nairobi, Kenya.
Coach Lawrence Njovu’s side attacked fairly but defended poorly on the day.
Zambia’s next Group B encounter is a must win against Kenya next Sunday.
Meanwhile, this was Senegal’s second straight win having pipped Kenya 20-19 in the opener last Saturday in Nairobi.
Table toppers Senegal have since advanced to the knockout stage of the campaign.
