Sables coach, man­ager re­sign

Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - Sport - Allen Khu­malo Sports Re­porter

THE Zim­babwe Rugby Union (ZRU) has an­nounced the res­ig­na­tion of the Sables tech­ni­cal team of coach Cyprian Man­denge and team man­ager Se­bas­tian Garikai.

The duo re­signed a week ago after the re­view of the team’s per­for­mance in the Africa Cup Di­vi­sion 1A.

“The Zim­babwe Rugby Union an­nounces that it has ac­cepted the res­ig­na­tion of the Sables tech­ni­cal team of head coach Cyprian Man­denge and team man­ager Se­bas­tian Garikai ef­fec­tive im­me­di­ately. After the re­view of the team’s per­for­mance in the Africa Cup Di­vi­sion 1A- 2016, the Sables tech­ni­cal duo of Cyprian and Se­bas­tian ten­dered their res­ig­na­tion,” read a ZRU state­ment.

The Sables got their Africa Cup Di­vi­sion 1A cam­paign off to an unin­spir­ing start when they suf­fered a 15-61 de­feat to Kenya and three weeks later, they were shocked 27-34 at home by Uganda. This saw Zim­babwe be­ing rel­e­gated to the Africa Cup Group 1B, which means they need to fin­ish top of Group 1B for them to be read­mit­ted to Group 1A.

The ZRU is now invit­ing ap­pli­ca­tions from suit­ably qual­i­fied per­sons for the po­si­tion of head coach. Ap­pli­cants should have a min­i­mum of World Rugby Level 2 coach­ing qual­i­fi­ca­tion or an equiv­a­lent and pre­vi­ous ex­pe­ri­ence coach­ing a high per­for­mance team. — @khumza­llen
