Botswana v Zambia
Venue: Hartsfield Rugby Club Ground
Botswana were well and truly thumped by Zimbabwe Wednesday. The Vultures were reported to have had to leave a few key players behind due to injury after the squad was selected. Zambia gave Madagascar a good run for their money on Wednesday and look more likely to win this game.
