Diggers Rugby coach wary of tricky 2017 seasonBy Diggers Reporter on 12 Apr 2017
Diggers Rugby coach Lawrence Njobvu is not happy with his side’s start to the 2017 Zambia Rugby Union league season despite Saturday’s 15-3 home win over Chibuluma in Kitwe.
The narrow result against their neighbours from Kalulushi saw the 2016 rugby league runners-up sit in mid-table at the end of Week 1.
“Tough game. We started well but second half was terrible but we have identified our weakness and areas where we need to work on,” Njobvu said.
“It was a good win for the start of the season but we need to work extra hard.”
Njobvu admitted that his side was still short on experience after he successfully moulded a youthful side last season following a mass exodus of players from Diggers due to internal problems at the club in 2015.
“We have identified some players who we need in order to beef up our team,” Njobvu said.
“If we are to challenge for the league, we need strong and mature players. For the time being we will work with what we have.”
Diggers are 7th in the 14-team league on 4 points, one point behind leaders and defending champions Arrows who lead with a bonus point thanks to their responding 63-3 away win over promoted Mufulira B.
Meanwhile, Njobvu has a little time to regroup and plot for their next game due to a bye in Week 2.
Diggers return to action on April 22 away in Lusaka to 3rd placed Buffaloes who beat Roan 41-10 away in Luanshya over the weekend.
