ANOTHER big weekend is in store today when the National Rugby League enters Week Five, with hosts Old Hararians set to make a number of changes to their starting line-up against Western Panthers following a spate of injuries.

Tangai Nemadire, Leroy Mashiri and hooker Wesley Mukonoshuro are likely to get the nod this afternoon to replace the injured trio of Mclean Muhambi, Prayer Chitenderu and Danny Robertson.

The Old Hararians players got serious knocks last week in the 86-6 victory over Zvishavane Bulls.

Old Hararians are in second place with 10 points.

Western Panthers are fourth with nine points.

“Both Tuesday and Thursday’s training were good and I am happy with the team we have chosen three players to fill in the gaps,” said Old Boys coach Cyprian Mandenge.

Old Georgians will be on the road when the play Gweru at Gweru Sports Club, while Zvishavane host Mutare.

Mutare were promoted to the NRL this year.

Club chairman Moss Kapumha said they wanted to win against Zvishavane Bulls.

“We are going to get our five points against Zvishavane, no doubt, because our boys have been improving with each training session,” said Kapumha.
