Rugby Africa – Who can halt the Namibian freight train

Having registered three wins from the first three rounds, all of which have been mammoth in nature ; 55-06, 118-00 and 63-07 against Uganda, Tunisia and Morocco respectively, the blue and white outfit look to be playing in a totally different league from the rest in Africa’s elite Tier one A. Namibia have always been a huge threat but have imposed a certain dominance over the past two campaigns that has seen them go to higher strengths to the point of shaming their opposition.

Often known for their ability to regroup and reinforce camp towards Rugby world cup tournaments, this seems the norm even this year.

Namibia chalked up their third consecutive bonus point victory in the Rugby Africa Gold Cup with a 63-7 win over Morocco in Casablanca on Saturday to remain firmly on course for a fourth straight title and almost surely securing a place in Pool B at Rugby World Cup in 2019.

The Simbas of Kenya seem to be the only possible threat to their cause with a two out of two win record so far as they sit in second place but with a game in hand. The Simbas are the only team in Tier one A that have a realistic chance of pooping on Namibia’s parade. A win for the Kenyans against Namibia would be monumental, creating a role reversal that would put destiny firmly in favour of Kenya for the automatic slot in the Rugby world condemning the other to a longer route through the repechage tournament that is as challenging as it is draining.

The two meet in the last game of the campaign that appears to be an epic clash of Titans in Windhoek provided the Kenyans don’t slip up prior to the encounter. Namibia’s impressive crop of stars will be more than motivated to do the job at home against the Simbas. If you are a betting person, your money would feel safer on Namibia as their scores show the difference compared to Kenya – numbers don’t lie ( well most of the time, they don’t )

The free scoring men in blue are led by talents such as Janco Venter, Cliven Loubser and Justin Newman who have put up not only immaculate displays with ball in hand but have shown maturity with the boot too ; fly-half Loubser has barely set a foot wrong with a kicking percentage of 90% in the first three outings.

The Forwards have been dangerous with the set piece, exhibiting an all round dominance against their hapless opponents who appear destitute of ideas. The front eight have been so dominant that they even had time to take on finishing duties with tight-head prop Johannes Coetzee, number eight PJ van Lill and flanker Venter all scoring in their most recent outing, a white wash of Morocco in their own backyard.

Life seems so easy for the Namibians with coaches expressing their joy at how everyone understands their roles and plays their part in what is a moving machine with no stop in sight.

Namibia captain Johan Deysel echoed the words of his coaches who always require precision and efficiency in every department when he said “We knew they’d be physical and we’d have to match them there. We did a good job,………. We got here on Tuesday and we prepared well, even though travelling long-distance is hard.”

The rest need to put a stop to this superiority, Kenya looking the mostly likely to stand a chance – this should begin by doing away with petty mistakes such as Tunisians sleeping on the streets, scuffles over payments and much more. Let the authorities polish up their act and enable the team focus on the game alone. Namibia isn’t that perfect either off the pitch but the level of organisation, from preparation to game time is something that the rest should emulate. With things set off the pitch, it is only a matter of time until it reflects on the pitch.
