Namibia defeats Tunisia in Rugby Africa Gold Cup

Namibia’s national team defeated Tunisia 118 - 0 in the Rugby Africa Gold Cup over the weekend at the Hage Geingob Rugby stadium in Windhoek. 

This was the second win for Namibia following their 55-6 victory over the Cranes of Uganda at the same venue a week ago.

Namibia meant business from the start scoring their first try in the second minute through Lesly Klim, which was converted by fly half Cliven Loubser.

Captain Johan Deysel added another converted try to make it 12-0 within 10 minutes.

Klim then added another and Loubser made no mistake with the boot to put the host 21-0 up with only 14 minutes on the clock.

Tunisia were offered a chance to put some points on the board through a penalty on the 19th minute, but Khalifa Nesemeddine missed.

In the second half, Namibia continued from where they left scoring 10 more tries through Greyling who scored three, Botha who added a double, Klim who contributed two, substitute’s Peter-Jan Van Lill, Damien Stevens and Johan Tromp each contributing a try apiece.

The home side missed only two conversions out of the 18 tries they scored against an out of sorts Tunisian team who offered no threat going forward and little to no resistance in defense.

The Namibian national team which has won the Rugby Africa Gold Cup for four times in a row will be looking to qualify for the 2019 World Cup finals slated for Japan.
