ZIMBABWE might have failed to collect a win on their return to the Dubai Sevens, but they certainly won a lot of admirers with their fighting performances while speedster Tafadzwa Chitokwindo showed once again why his stock has been rising fast on the Sevens rugby circuit.

The Cheetahs’ campaign ended with a narrow 14-10 defeat to former world champions Wales in the 13th place semi-final playoff clash at the Sevens Stadium, United Arab Emirates.
The result meant the Cheetahs finished last in the event alongside their continental rivals Kenya, who lost 26-19 to Japan in the other semi-final for 13th place.
Zimbabwe had earlier lost to Canada 35-8 in the Challenge Trophy quarter-final after losing all their Pool “A” matches against South Africa (31-0), Argentina (22-19) and Samoa (17-15).
