Matabeleland Warriors through to semis


MATABELELAND Warriors are through to the semi-finals of the Lion Rugby League after beating Western Panthers 32-8 at Hartsfield Rugby Ground yesterday.


Matabeleland Warriors are fourth on the log table and have a seemingly easy assignment next weekend against Zvishavane Bulls on anchor.

Old Miltonians (OMs) could pull a shocker against Harare Sports Club although it will be a tough encounter. In another match played at Hartsfield, Old Hararians beat OMs 27-14.
Old Hararians will clash with Old Georgians next week in what is expected to be the highlight of the league, with the teams fighting for the top slot.

Matabeleland Warriors got their tries from Brian Dube, Royal Mwale — who scored two — and captain Lucky Sithole. Dube and Tarisai Mugariri scored two penalties.
Dube, Sithole and Mugariri converted for OMs.

Panthers, who seemed to struggle in the match and were without veteran player George Mukorera, got their their scores from Ntandoyenkosi Ndlovu through a penalty and Thembelani Ncube who got the only try for the Bulawayo side.
