THE PREDICTION

Tunisia’s rising covid-19 crisis saw them pull out of the Rugby Africa Cup as hosts of Pool D, leaving Burkina Faso and Zimbabwe to play-off for the two qualifying spots over two matches. The Pool will also move to Zimbabwe, giving the higher-ranked side an even bigger advantage than they already had but this should not bother Burkina Faso too much as they are assured passage through to Round 3. With the pressure off for both sides these back-to-back matches should be an altogether enjoyable occasion for both teams but Zimbabwe are currently 56 places above their visitors in the Rugby World Rankings for a reason and they should cover -20 quite comfortably here.
