Sunday Express - - SPORT - Moorosi Tsiane

GI­ANTS de­mol­ished NUL Spears 41-0 to clinch the Le­sotho Rugby League ti­tle at LCS Ground yes­ter­day. Gi­ants trea­surer Reale­boha Se­goete said the league win has boosted the team as they pre­pare for the Eastern Free State League start­ing next month.

He said it was a tough match but they man­aged to come on top.

“It was not an a easy match at all, but at the same time, it was a great chal­lenge for us and will be a great boost for us go­ing into the Grif­fons League that is re­sum­ing next month in the Eastern Free State,” Se­goete said.

He added that they are aim­ing to, at least, reach the leagues’ play offs af­ter a poor show­ing last sea­son.

“Last sea­son we did not play well be­cause the na­tional team matches in­ter­rupted our pro­gramme as we had many play­ers in the team,” said Se­goete.

On his part, Spears flank Let­latsa Le­tompa, said his side lacked com­po­sure dur­ing the match.

“It was a tough match for us as we lacked com­po­sure, I think we played more in­di­vid­u­ally than as a team,” Le­tompa said.

He, how­ever, said it was a learn­ing curve for them adding that they will re­turn much stronger next sea­son.

Mean­while, Fed­er­a­tion of Le­sotho Rugby Sec­re­tary Gen­eral Litšitso Motšeremeli said he was im­pressed with the just-ended league which had seen an im­prove­ment in the num­ber of sup­port­ers.

“It was a great tour­ney in­deed which shows that we are go­ing some­where with rugby since there was a lot of im­prove­ment from the teams,” Motšeremeli said.

He added that the im­proved per­fo­mances would in­crease the com­pe­ti­tion in the na­tional team.

In the losers fi­nal, Maseru War­riors reg­is­tered a 32-10 win against Mabote Beavers.
