Sables’ prop Brian Makamure was named the Old Hararians Rugby Club Heineken Player of the Year last Friday night.

The bustling 20–year–old prop was honoured by the club for his sterling efforts this season by also scooping the Best Forward Prize, before also being recognised by his peers as Players’ Player of the Year.

Makamure, who represented Zimbabwe at the Junior Rugby World Trophy before making his debut for the Sables, achieved a hat–trick of awards by capping off the night with the prestigious Heineken Player of the Year Award.

Fellow front–row forward at Under–20 level Tatenda Karuru won the Best Under–21 Trophy which was sponsored by Enos Mbofana.

Speed merchant Tafadzwa Chitokwindo was named Rookie of the Year and is currently in the Cheetahs’ squad preparing to take part in the Dubai and George legs of the Sevens World Series.

Veteran centre Victor Zimbawo, who has been a loyal servant of the club, was named the Best Back, while Sables’ lock Witness Mandizha was named the Most Improved Player after making his debut for the Sables early this year.
