Home » Sports » Epic Rugby Duel Explodes

HARARE Sports Club coach Daniel Hondo says he is enjoying life at the club and feels his boys have put in a lot of good work in preparation for their derby clash against Old Georgians today.

Both sides are uneaten in the seven-team Northern Region Rugby League.

The top-of-the-table encounter has a lot of bearing in the championship race.

Old Georgians are on top of the standings after accumulating 15 points in their three games with a bonus point from each of their matches.

Harare Sports Club have 15 points, inclusive of three bonus points, but an inferior points (scored) difference relegates them to second place.

Hondo, who was early this year was appointed the new Cheetahs coach, took over at Sports Club from Nsikelelo Sibanda who had been at the helm of the club for a number of years, winning a couple of championships as coach.

“I have been at the club for some time and have been helping in the technical structure over the years but I must say things are going well so far, there is mutual respect at the club between the players and me and this makes life easy.

“I still play, as a team we have been focused on all we do, we are unbeaten after three games so far and I must give it up to the team because we have put in a lot of good work in the lead-up to the season, we are focused on playing as a team and we take it game by game,” said Hondo.

Hondo resigned from Sevens rugby as a player two years ago but he is still active in the XVs version.

Last weekend, they were 135-0 victors over youthful Southern City of Chitungwiza.

“We take every game seriously and we knew that we were going to take on OGs this weekend so we had to make sure match fitness, and other aspects of the team, are maintained.”
