Fit Namibia ready for fast-paced Kenya
in final round of Rugby Gold Cup match

WINDHOEK (Xinhua) -- Namibia’s rugby national team head coach Phil Davies said on Wednesday that his team is looking forward to a big challenge when they face Kenya in the Rugby Africa Gold Cup here on Saturday.

Namibia take on Kenya in the final game of the qualifiers, and Davies told Xinhua that the mood in the Namibian camp is excellent.

“We have great respect for Kenya and we are all very much looking forward to a big challenge come Saturday,” he added.

Asked about the speed the Kenyan team possess, Davies said that quick players are always a threat in any team.

“We have good speed in our team as well, and it’s not about watching specific players, it’s all about Namibia playing as a strong collective unit and matching up to a very talented Kenyan side,” he told Xinhua.

According to Davies, Namibia will not feature many changes from his last squad that beat Zimbabwe, adding that his team’s match fitness is very good.

The Welshman added that the weather conditions in Windhoek on Saturday will be perfect for both teams.

“The pitch will be nice and dry and will favor running rugby. It will be a fantastic occasion and one that African rugby will be proud of, I am sure,” he added.

Other matches on Saturday see Uganda take on Zimbabwe, while Tunisia face Morocco.

The 2018 Gold Cup is pivotal for the African champions, as the tournament doubles as a qualifier for the 2019 Rugby World Cup in Japan.
