Mukidza skippers Simbas against Diables Barcelona

Mukidza said, “The mood in camp is good and a number of the players are excited that they get to play for the first time in this tour while for other, this will be their second time. They have also picked up the pace of the game during our training sessions and we also saw how  Diables Barcelona play their rugby. I believe we’re ready for the game and I can assure our supporters that we will give it our best when we take on to the pitch.”
