The Zimbabwe women’s rugby team, Lady Sables, once again lost to a dominant Ugandan side which beat them 34-03 in a Test match played at Kyadondo Stadium in Kampala.
Zimbabwe looked a different side from the first as they dominated possession in the first thirty minutes although they were three points down as Uganda had scored a penalty conversion earlier on.
The lady Sables never looked like they would score as they failed to negotiate through the Lady Cranes defense and would make a mistake every time they got close to the try line.
There was massive improvement on the scrums but it was the support on offence that remained the same. Zimbabwe were terrible on lineouts and turned over the ball too many times.
Meanwhile, inside sources cited disunite in the camp with allegations that players refused to be captained by Leanne Max which could have ultimately led her to being left behind.
More unconfirmed reports claim that even in Uganda, certain players vowed not to support play when other team mates had the ball.
The play on the field of play showed a disfigured team which was unlike other Zimbabwe Lady Sables team.
Coach Munya Mhonda, in his previous communication with this publication stated that camp went on well and the players were ready for the matches in Uganda although the rumor mill has it otherwise. Whatever went on during this tour has to be fixed to avoid future embarrassments.
