Namibia’s senior rugby side, the Welwitschias, will tomorrow knuckle down to some serious business when they face Zimbabwe for their next Africa Cup Division 1A assignment at the Hage Geingob Stadium in Windhoek.

With two comprehensive opening victories against Uganda and Kenya at home and away, Namibia should have little trouble negotiating their way past the visiting Zimbabweans. On paper and also when one reads closely into both teams’ last results, the home side appears to be clear favourites going into tomorrow’s match.



Zimbabwe is yet to win a match in this competition, having lost both their encounters against Kenya and Uganga. The winner of Division 1A – the highest-rated group – will be crowned Africa Cup champion.

There are 23 nations playing in the 2016 Africa Cup. They are split into several divisions. The Africa Cup is an annual rugby union tournament organised by Rugby Africa. Namibia has won the cup five times since its establishment in 2000.
