On the sidelines of the Mascom Top 8 launch, Voice Sport caught up with Jwaneng Galaxy Public Relations Officer (PRO) Tankiso Morake who said he was impressed with how the draw turned out. “We have been drawn with Gaborone United (GU) who we humbled at the Mascom Top 8 Final last year, so they are going to come with revenge intentions which I think it is going to be interesting as our aim is to win this cup back to back,” he said.
