Gaborone Hogs and Livingstone Kolobeng College (LKC) Jaguars have qualified for the Botswana Rugby League A Division League final that will be played on Saturday.

Hogs booked themselves a spot in the final by hammering their long time rivals, BDF Cheetahs by 21-3 on Saturday afternoon. LKC on the other hand, pulled a slim margin victory of 22-23 over UB Rhinos on Friday night.

Hogs showed their intention to run away with the game from the first whistle as they launched attack on their opponents. The attack led to Cheetahs committing a foul that resulted in Hogs being awarded a penalty in the 5th minute. Hogs forward, Edie Ousthuizen did not waste time as he converted from the spot to make it 3-0. Cheetahs tried to level matters, but gave Hogs another penalty, which was scored by Ousthuizen to extend the margin to 6-0. Cheetahs forward were working hard to win the balls and move the team up the field, but Hogs defence was making the impossible. The army side was awarded a set piece in the 18th minute and Lekgoba Bafana missed the target by a whisker.  Ousthuizen failed to convert a long ranger from the spot a few minutes later and the miss left Hogs leading 9-0. Omphile Dabula made a good run on the left flank, but was unlucky as Hogs players tackled him. The game went to recess with Hogs leading 15-0. Cheetahs came into the second half in a better form with the side making runs. They introduced the fresh legs of Kabo Batsile and Podius Mandevu.

Recently, in the city of Francistown, some locals found...
