ZIM RUGBY PLAYER SHINES IN THE UK
A promising Zimbabwean rugby player has had his contract extended at Hull FC in the UK.
Masimbaashe Matongo’s contract has been extended by three years. After making his Super League debut with the Black and Whites in 2015, the Zimbabwe-born prop has excelled under the stewardship of former forward Lee Radford.
“I first got a call a few weeks ago, saying that Hull wanted to extend my contract, so I was absolutely buzzing to hear that news,” Matongo said. “I’ve been really happy with the way I’ve been playing lately and I’m looking forward to getting my head down and working hard to improve even more these next few years.
“The contract extension allows me to put a marker down and it will give me the encouragement to try and get up there with the best in the game.”
