NAMIBIA V TUNISIA; World Cup Qualifier, Africa, Division 1B Final


Venue: Stade Iba Mar Doip Dakar


This is a crucial game this weekend. Namibia were relegated to Africa Division 1B last year after losing 54-57 to Madagascar in a dramatic game played out in extra time.

That result just made Namibia’s quest to reach the 2015 Rugby World Cup finals a whole lot more difficult.The Africa 2 spot goes to the winner of Africa Division 1A in 2014. So Namibia must win this game to progress to 1A for next year and aim for that top spot.

Tunisia will also be out to regain their place in Africa Division 1A and try and make the Rugby World Cup finals for the first time.

Those outcomes rest with this result in Dakar, Senegal, host to this years World Cup qualifiers.

Wednesday’s games saw Nambia defeat Senegal 35-12 and Tunisia defeating Botswana 43-12.
