The Springbok Women annihilated Zimbabwe 108-0 in their first international match of 2022, scoring 17 tries in Pool A of the Rugby Africa Women’s Cup at City Park in Cape Town on Wednesday, 15 June 2022.

Zimbabwe displayed glimpses of quality but could not keep up with their opponents. All in all, it made a wholly mismatched contest as the Nolusindiso Booi-captained side showed class and dominance.

Border Ladies centre, Aphiwe Ngwevu marked her return in green and gold scoring a hat-trick of tries which saw her walking away with the Player of the Match award.

Springbok Women’s head coach Stanley Raubenheimer was impressed with his team’s performance.

“That was good discipline on our side. We kept to our structures and the rewards came, so I am happy. We will look at our defensive lapses, but overall, a good day for all involved.”

Coached by an ex-national team player Lissy Wasarirevu, Zimbabwe will hope to bounce back when they play Namibia on Sunday, 19 June 2022.

Action will conclude on Thursday, 23 June, when South Africa locks horns with Namibia.
