Mudariki wins Sports Personality of the Year Award

Warriors tighthead prop Farai Mudariki was voted Sports Personality of the Year in the Zimbabwe Achievers Awards UK.

Mudariki, a Zimbabwe international, joined Warriors from French Pro D2 club Tarbes last summer.

Although his first season at Sixways was interrupted by injuries, Mudariki impressed sufficiently to be awarded a contract extension earlier in the year.

Mudariki, 24, scored a try on his Zimbabwe debut against Madagascar in 2015 and played the most recent of his ten internationals against Tunisia last August.

The award was presented at a gala event at the Millennium Gloucester Hotel in London on Africa Day which also marked the launch of the ZAA Foundation.

The Zimbabwe Achievers Awards were started by Conrad Mwanza in 2010 in the UK and has now spread to the USA, Australia, South Africa and Canada which is in its inaugural year, to recognize and honour Zimbabweans based abroad.
