AFTER losing 41-0 to Uganda on Wednesday in a Rugby Africa Cup match, Lady Sables head coach Munyaradzi Mhonda says the team will be better placed in their next game against the same opponents on Sunday.
The match will be played at Kyadondo Rugby Grounds in Uganda and will mark the end to the Pool C Women’s Rugby Africa Cup games which had the two opponents.
“We will be in a better space in the next game on Sunday because I am sure we will figure out some new combinations at training starting today (yesterday).
“We will do match analysis mainly looking at our strengths and weaknesses,” Mhonda told H-Metro yesterday from Kampala.
Commenting on the performance of his team in Wednesday’s match, the coach said:
“We always start with a bang and it is in second half that we lose the steam.
“We dropped our heads at the wrong time and I can attribute that to young age and it comes with less self-confidence.”
Lady Sables squad that is in Uganda has only three players that are aged above 25, namely Patience Harubereki (28), Lindiwe Munerenyu (27) and Gladys Shyline Mukome (30).
Mhonda added there was some physiological issues that the girls were going through.
“Yes the weather is warm here but we will not use that as an excuse, there was some physiological issues that the ladies were going through that negatively affected us,” he added.
