The Zimbabwe sevens rugby team will this weekend assemble for a two day camp as the Cheetahs continue with preparations for the 2018 World Cup to be hosted by the United States from 20th to the 22nd of July.

Zimbabwe will be one of four African countries that will compete at the 2018 Sevens Rugby World Cup.

With just over 6 months remaining for the competition the Cheetahs are set to commence preparations by assembling for a training camp this weekend.

Zimbabwe Rugby Union chief executive officer Blessing Chiutare said invitations have been extended to local coaches so as to render assistance to head coach Gilbert Nyamutsamba.

A total of 24 teams will compete at the Sevens Rugby World Cup competition to be staged in San Francisco.

Zimbabwe are scheduled to be involved in at least 7 events in the run up to the sevens rugby extravaganza.

Zimbabwe, South Africa, Kenya and Uganda are the four African nations that will compete at this year’s Sevens World Cup.
