Namibia records its highest score ever in test rugby
The 118-0 win by Namibia’ national rugby team, the Welwitschias over Tunisia goes down as the highest score ever in test rugby.
The tem took another step towards reclaiming the Africa Gold Cup, a second win for the Welwitschias following their 55-6 victory over Uganda at the same venue a week ago.
Welwitschias’ head coach, Phil Davies, was understandably pleased with the ruthlessness shown by his side against an out-of-sorts Tunisia.
“The boys played well in the second half with a flowing passing game. I am still in the process of building a competitive team as most of these players are still very young. What can one say? It is all about who the best is, and I am not afraid to say we are the best in Africa and we will prove it once more. We are adamant that we will bring back the gold cup to the land of the brave very soon,” he said.
He added that the team is very competitive and all the African teams are aware of it due to footprints the team has left on their home and away games.
Namibia top the standings with 10 points while Kenya are six points behind in second after beginning their Gold Cup campaign with a hard-fought 28-24 win away to Morocco.
Namibia did not get any reward for their victory over Tunisia as they started the game over 11 points better off in the rankings.
