Zim 7s in camp for Hong Kong

HARARE - Zimbabwe's Sevens rugby team went into camp on Tuesday in Harare to prepare for the Hong Kong leg of the IRB World Sevens Series, which starts on March 28.

The Hong Kong stopover is part of the qualification process for core membership on the whirlwind nine-legged World Sevens Series circuit.

The Cheetahs will take a number of positives after finishing in second place in the recently held Zimbabwe Invitational Sevens Tournament. The Cheetahs lost to the South African Sevens Academy 21-15 in a pulsating final at Harare Sports Club on Saturday night, but will buoyed after convincing wins over Georgia, Hong Kong and Russia in the tournament.
