Zimbabwe Sables thrash Burkina Faso RAC Pool C final clash

Zimbabwe Sables completed a double over Burkina Faso, whipping the side 95-5 in the final Rugby Africa Cup Pool D match at the Old Georgians Sports Club.

Burkina Faso had suffered a 101-3 loss in the first leg encounter played on Sunday and were eyeing a bounce back. Despite the Sables Coach Brendan Dawson making nine changes to his squad, his men nearly replicated last Sunday’s result.

By the halftime break, Zim had already crossed the 40-point mark, scoring 41 points. The final half saw Zimbabwe score 54 points to pick another huge win. The win sees Zimbabwe head to the 2022 Rugby World Cup qualifiers as Pool C table toppers and have to face Ivory Coast.

Burkina Faso have finished second and have a date with Namibia. The Pool changed to a two-team group after Tunisia were forced out due to the COVID-19 situation in their country. Travel restrictions barred them from travelling to Zimbabwe which was picked as an alternative host.
